The Center for the Performing Arts seeks an individual to serve as the Individual Giving Associate. Focused on donor stewardship, benefit fulfillment and gift processing/recognition, this position balances internal philanthropic logistics with donor-facing communication. In addition, this individual will work closely with other staff to create and fulfill the donor experience, from acquisition of new donors through long-term stewardship. Captivating personality, polish and dependability are key.

Starting with grand opening of the Palladium in January 2011, the Center for the Performing Arts is an inviting gathering place for the community, along with the Center's Studio Theater and the Tarkington. Combined, the three venues are a place for community engagement and for people to celebrate great art together.

The Center is not only a haven for local theater, dance and music organizations to perform, it also provides three of the finest stages in the world playing host to the globe's most gifted performers.

Equally important to the talents performing on stage is the Center's architecture. Our success will be measured both by the works on stage and the inspiration found under our magnificent classical Palladio dome. There is no other complex built in North America where so much attention has been paid to acoustics. The Palladium will last 500 years or more, creating a legacy that will be passed along to our children and grandchildren for generations to come. 

The mission of the Center for the Performing Arts is to welcome, engage, inspire, and transform through compelling performing arts experiences in a world class environment.
