The ChiArts Foundation is the philanthropic partner of The Chicago High School for the Arts (ChiArts) and is dedicated to supporting and nurturing arts education opportunities for current, future, and former students of the School. With a goal to raise over $3 million annually, our work sustains ChiArts’ Creative Writing, Dance, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts conservatories.
The ChiArts Foundation offers ample opportunities for employees to bring new ideas to the forefront. When you join the ChiArts community, you connect with hundreds of artists and leaders who all share missions of uplifting diversity, equity, and the next generation of leaders. The Foundation and School’s partnership provides the Foundation staff with the best of both worlds: a small and mighty remote team where everyone is a thought leader and a School where the possibilities of in-person creative collaboration are endless. As ChiArts approaches its 15th anniversary and the Foundation celebrates its third, staff continue to build off of the brilliant minds that came before them while transitioning the Foundation into its next growth phase. The Foundation team prides itself on adaptability and accessibility, understanding that everyone learns and grows in different ways.
ChiArts Foundation staff work remotely in Chicago, with the potential for a future transition to a hybrid model. All roles require availability for onsite presence at The Chicago High School for the Arts (ChiArts) and other locations in Chicago as required for meetings and events.
We encourage applications from all backgrounds, especially those from marginalized communities. At ChiArts Foundation, we value inclusivity and diverse perspectives. If your experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification listed on a role, we still encourage you to apply!
