About the Levitt Foundation
The Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation is a national social impact funder that partners with nonprofits to build stronger, more connected communities through the power of free, live music. We realize our mission of building community through music through two core programs: the permanent Levitt venue program and the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards. Throughout the pandemic, permanent Levitt venues and Levitt AMP concert sites nationwide 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, with a return to in-person live concerts this summer. This year, more than 400 free outdoor Levitt concerts will take place in 27 towns and cities across the country, bringing joy to people of all ages and backgrounds.
The Levitt Foundation is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion throughout our organization and all aspects of our work, recognizing this commitment as essential to realizing the Levitt mission. Our commitment to EDI fosters a culture where team members can truly belong, contribute, and grow. We believe in each individual’s value and encourage applications from people of any age, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, veteran status, and any other characteristic or identity.

The Levitt Foundation is seeking an experienced, high-performing Program Officer to oversee the Foundation’s growing national portfolio of Levitt AMP grantees, comprised of nonprofits based in small to mid-sized towns and cities. This is an exciting opportunity to join a collaborative team environment, working across the organization with Foundation staff and closely with the Programs team to expand the reach of the Foundation’s grantmaking and deepen impact in communities. The Program Officer will work with existing and prospective grantees, conduct site visits throughout the country, manage each phase of grant cycles, and identify and develop resources to support the local efforts of grantees and advance programmatic goals and outcomes.
The Program Officer will play a key role in identifying opportunities and developing strategies aligned with the Foundation’s values and mission to inform Levitt network initiatives and new grant programs. The ideal candidate will have an interest in traveling to communities across the country and strong interpersonal and analytical skills and program management experience, along with a passion for Levitt’s mission of supporting free, outdoor concerts as a means to create equitable, activated public spaces and invigorate community life.
