DC Arts Non Profit Seeking Pro Bono Accountant to Join Leadership Team

The organization was founded in 2005 to empower individuals and communities to participate in the arts through the production, publication, and promotion of creative projects. Recent grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, Humanities Council of Washington, and the DC Commission on the Arts, have encouraged the Board of Directors to consider steps we might take to increase the impact and sustainability of our programming, and we are recruiting an accountant to join the Board on that basis.

Since 2013, the Board has been exceptionally well-served by a member volunteer accountant. His work and family situation having changed, he aims to withdraw from service to the organization over the next six months. The organization seeks a qualified early to mid career accountant to volunteer alongside the board and program volunteers to serve the organization's accounting needs. 

With a current annual budget just over $30k, there is a relatively low volume of transactions to track, but the accountant plays an essential and valued leadership role in everything the organization is able to do.
