SPACES is a 37-year old art organization that is dedicated to being the resource and public forum for artists who explore and experiment. Located on the near west side of downtown Cleveland, SPACES annually presents 13 public projects and hosts approximately 40 public events. SPACES is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization with an annual operating budget of approximately $500,000. The staff includes five full-time employees, 4 contracted employees, and numerous interns and volunteers who provide ongoing support throughout the year.

SPACES seeks a Capital Campaign Manager to fill this newly-created, part-time position (16 hours/week), responsible for implementing and completing a $3.5 million comprehensive campaign. This fundraising effort will support the organization's adaptive re-use and move to a new location, and create an endowment to maintain the future of SPACES.

  • Supporting Capital Campaign Committee activities by organizing meetings, monitoring assignments, and assisting in all aspects of Committee-led events.
  • Evaluating progress towards goals, preparing periodic reports on fundraising, and recommending revisions to the fundraising plan, as needed, to meet goals.
  • Tracking data related to prospects and donors; managing pledge agreements, payment reminders, and campaign gift acknowledgements.
  • Ensuring public recognition for donors.
