Music of Remembrance (MOR) is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 to remember the Holocaust through music. With concert performances, educational programs, recordings, and commissions of new works by some of today’s leading composers, MOR honors those of all backgrounds who found the strength to create even in the face of persecution, and those who had the courage to speak out against cruelty. We tell stories that communicate urgent lessons for today, and we look beyond the Holocaust itself to the experience of others who have been excluded or persecuted for their faith, ethnicity, gender or sexuality.
MOR seeks a creative, energetic professional to generate funding for MOR’s artistic projects and its operations. Working closely with the Artistic Director, this individual will shape fundraising strategies and directly carry them out. He or she will have primary hands-on responsibility for cultivating, soliciting and stewarding major and annual donors. A major part of the role will be to coordinate the planning and execution of MOR’s annual major fundraising gala.
