About the Howard Gilman Foundation:
The Howard Gilman Foundation is a private foundation that supports the performing arts in the five boroughs of New York City. Our team-based, holistic approach focuses on acknowledging, studying, and empathizing with the unique complexities and needs of non-profit performing arts organizations. This approach is informed by Gilman’s core values, which include respect for, and trust in, our applicants and grantees. Our values manifest in our processes and procedures, as well as the type of funding provided. With an annual grantmaking budget of $32 million, the Foundation is one of the largest private funders of New York City’s performing arts sector.
As part of an organizational expansion, the Foundation now seeks a Grants Assistant to work with its current eight-person team. With guidance and support from the Director of Grants Administration and the Grants Manager, the Grants Assistant will implement Gilman’s grantmaking processes and procedures.
