Executive Director

The Leeway Foundation supports women and trans artists and cultural producers working in communities at the intersection of art, culture, and social change. Through their grantmaking and other programs, they promote artistic expression that amplifies the voices of those on the margins, promotes sustainable and healthy communities, and works in the service of movements for economic and social justice. At a pivotal moment of change with Leeway’s long-time leader moving on, Leeway now invites applications and nominations for its next Executive Director.

The Executive Director will lead an exemplary staff, in partnership with a committed board, to continue to fund the impactful work of cultural producers in the Philadelphia area, expand resources deployed to support grantees and applicants, and influence the field of philanthropy to shift power to artists and communities they support.

We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive organization, and we are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job. That candidate may be one who comes from a background less traditional to our field of work, and we welcome the opportunity for new insight into our work. If you feel resonance with this position description, we would strongly encourage you to apply, even if you don’t believe you meet every one of the qualifications described.
