Scope of Work:
The Multnomah County Cultural Coalition (MCCC) provides grants on an annual cycle to support arts, culture, history, heritage, and the humanities using funds provided by the Oregon Cultural Trust. MCCC, which comprises an all-volunteer board, is seeking an administration specialist for a one-year renewable contract. The specialist will work with the coalition to build, update, and maintain an outreach list to broaden grant participation in Multnomah County; provide grant portal updates, grants panel logistics, and administrative support; scheduling, minutes, and follow-up for each of the coalition’s quarterly meetings; liaise with fiscal sponsor to procure regular financial statements; maintain the MCCC website and social media; and provide general administrative tasks, including annual reporting to the Oregon Cultural Trust. 

Applicants should be comfortable using basic office software, with special emphasis on spreadsheets (notably Excel). Attention to detail is critical. Experience setting up and managing remote meetings is preferred. Meetings will be remote to start but could transition back to in person; all other work will be performed remotely. 

Connections to under-resourced cultural communities, and/or fluency in a language other than English, are pluses. This position would suit someone who is passionate about arts and culture, would enjoy supporting grassroots grantmaking, and is proactive and strategic regarding process and outreach improvements. This is a one-year, contract position, paid quarterly, for a total payment of $5,000. This role requires roughly 150-180 hours a year, depending on the candidate’s experience. The contract will run for one year from date of signing and, upon mutual agreement, will be renewed in one year increments.  The Administrative Specialist will report to the MCCC co-chairs, assist the MCCC grants panel chair(s) and act as the initial point of contact with the fiscal sponsor, Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC).
