The Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation exists to strengthen social fabric of America. We’re a national social impact funder that partners with nonprofits to build thriving, more connected communities through the power of free, live music. We realize our mission of community through music through two core programs: the permanent Levitt venue program and the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards, an annual grants competition. In 2019, more than 550 free outdoor Levitt concerts took place in 26 towns and cities across America, bringing joy to more than 750,000 people of all ages and backgrounds. In 2020 and 2021, permanent Levitt venues and Levitt AMP concert sites nationwide have innovated to uplift, connect and inspire their communities in new ways—from virtual concerts and online songwriting camps to drive-in and pop-up concerts, to a return to in-person live concerts this summer.
The Levitt Foundation is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) throughout our organization and all aspects of our work, recognizing this commitment as essential to realizing the Levitt mission. We value having a team with a wide range of perspectives, backgrounds, experiences, and skills so our approach to grantmaking is well-rounded and the connection with our team members and the communities we support is authentic. We strive to create a positive working culture through professional development opportunities, employee recognition, and team-building events and activities. We focus on creating a working environment that promotes collaboration and fairness. Our commitment to EDI fosters a culture where team members can truly belong, contribute, and grow. We believe in the value of every individual and encourage applications from people of any age, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion, ethnicity, disability, veteran status, and any other characteristic or identity.
