Like many non-profit organizations, the Houston Masterworks Chorus (HMC) is diligently working to establish new systems, technologies, and procedures to ensure the longterm prosperity of the organization. Recent successes have positioned the organization on a very positive trajectory, but we need the help of enthusiastic and skilled volunteers to further support our growth.
Through the years, HMC has been the grateful recipient of many grants, whose funds have supported many goals of the chorus. Currently the chorus is the recipient of grants from the Houston Arts Alliance, Wortham Foundation, Albert and Ethel Herzstein Charitable Foundation, Humphreys Foundation, as well as many private donors. However, HMC continues to operate on a very prudent budget, cautious to spend funds judiciously.
Thus, our funding we need help finding grants. There will always be a need for event-specific underwriting, monies to fund operations, and subsidies to support employee salaries.
This is where you come in. With the help of our grants committee, we need a few volunteers identify the areas in which we can use funding, determine the best grants to apply for, and complete the time-consuming applications using the content we provide to you.
We want this to be the best experience possible for our volunteers, so to begin, we'll start with a quick and informal phone interview to get to know you and identify how we can help YOU get the most of your experience.
Volunteers can work during the daytime or evening, with task lists clearly outlining prioritized projects and deadlines. For the majority of projects, you can set your own pace and schedule.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
