Manager, Individual Giving, Arts Umbrella

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada · Arts Umbrella


Arts Umbrella is where young artists ages 2–22 cultivate their creativity in Dance, Theatre, and

Visual Arts. As a non-profit organization for arts education, we believe that art is powerful.

Powerful enough to change kids’ lives in incredible ways. When young people connect with the

arts, they gain self-confidence, develop self-discipline, and discover creative expression—things

they carry with them for life. Arts Umbrella has four locations in Vancouver and Surrey, as well as

donor-funded programs at schools, community centres, neighbourhood houses, and healthcare

facilities across Metro Vancouver. We reach close to 21,000 students every year, with nearly

80% participating at little to no cost.

Now celebrating its 40th year, Arts Umbrella will be moving into the South Building of the former

Emily Carr University of Art + Design on Granville Island in late 2019. This exceptional

opportunity will allow Arts Umbrella to further our vision for a better world where all young lives

are inspired to pursue a lifelong journey towards self-expression, compassion, and humanity. It

is our mission to be Canada’s leader in arts education for young people; to build community and

deliver profound life experiences through our commitment to innovation, excellence, and

inclusivity. Arts Umbrella is an organization full of heart, where self-expression and creativity are

valued and nurtured.
