Manager of Institutional Giving

Committed to inclusion, diversity, equity, and access throughout the organization and in all aspects of its programming, Mosaic Theater Company of DC seeks a Manager of Institutional Giving to build on the Company’s first four remarkably successful years and join a team of fundraising professionals taking Mosaic to the next level as outlined in our Strategic Plan.  


Mosaic will celebrate its 5th Season in 2019-2020 with a $3.3M budget powered by a “dream” production grant from The Roy Cockrum Foundation, bolstered by support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Shubert Foundation, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and many more dedicated funders.


Mosaic was founded in December 2014 on the principle of uplifting a multiplicity of viewpoints in order to foster the awareness and empathy that lead to positive social change. Mosaic has played to more than 150,000 ticket holders since our first production in Fall 2015 and has received three Helen Hayes awards, including the John Aniello Award for Outstanding Emerging Theatre Company. The organization is led by Founding Artistic Director Ari Roth, Managing Director/Producer Serge Seiden, Associate Artistic Director Victoria Murray Baatin; the Board Chair is William Tompkins. Mosaic has an engaged and diverse 30-member Board of Directors and staff of 15 full-time and additional part-time employees.


Mosaic is a Resident Arts Partner at the Atlas Performing Arts Center on the vibrant H Street NE corridor of Washington, DC. We complement our productions with comprehensive engagement through free pre- and post-show programming, an annual intercultural festival, like our “Voices From a Changing Middle East” series, and educational initiatives, including our touring Mosaic on the Move and Weekday Matinees for students and seniors. We strive to foster a culture of listening and welcoming, embracing complexity and a multi-focal perspective.  Mosaic produces intercultural, provocative plays, fosters new work by women and people of color, and lifts up underrepresented voices from the Middle East.
