Senior Program Associate, Arts and Culture


The Senior Program Associate, Arts and Culture works with and assists the Director, Arts and Culture to advance the Foundation’s grantmaking, strategies, and initiatives in the Arts. The Foundation’s Arts and Culture strategy aims to strengthen and support the region’s cultural sector through grantmaking, research, and advocacy. At present, Arts and Culture grantmaking supports individual artists through three different programs, including Live Arts Boston; resources the advocacy and arts service portions of the sector that serve as critical infrastructure; invests in building a culture of public art; and supports continued efforts to foreground racial and cultural equity in the arts sector. As a key partner to the Director, this position requires an individual who has knowledge of and a passion for the arts and the community.  In this position the Senior Program Associate supports, manages, and/or implements internal and external grantmaking, research, convening, events, and handles other activities and administrative responsibilities as required.

The Senior Program Associate will join the Boston Foundation at a time of exciting change, with a strategic planning process underway. This is also a critical and uniquely challenging moment for the arts sector given tremendous losses incurred during the ongoing pandemic, and a major focus for the immediate future will be on supporting a just and equitable recovery in the sector.


Position Budgeted: $52,000 - $56,000
