Opera NOVA , a 501 (c) (3) all-volunteer non-profit organization, needs at least two (2) Grant Writers to help raise funds for our productions. Most of the funding we get to pay the costs of our productions come from major grantors (including governments, corporations, foundations, and other non-profit organizations). Also, we always look for new organizations to apply to for grants as well as to expand our grantor base.

Responsibilities for our grant writers include:

  • Help provide materials for and complete grant applications

  • Generate proposals and supporting documents

  • Maintain and implement funding calendar schedule

  • Identify funding opportunities to match Opera NOVA’s needs

  • Follow up on denied grant applications to better understand company shortcomings

It is a plus if our grant writers have the following skills:

  • Prior grant writing experience a plus

  • Reasoning ability

  • Able to meet deadlines

  • Narrative writing ability a great plus

  • Proficient in MS Office especially Excel and Word

This would be a good opportunity for college students at home for the summer as well as mothers and grandmothers. If you are interested in working in this vital area, please let us know. Residents of Arlington and Northern Virginia, DC, and Maryland are welcome.

Opera NOVA is dedicated to making opera accessible and affordable for all residents of Arlington and Northern Virginia. For more information about this volunteer position, please email Also, visit our website at
