Arts, Culture, & Media Philanthropic Advisors invites nominations and applications to join the Peace Center, a nationally acclaimed not-for-profit performing arts center located in Greenville, South Carolina, as its Individual Giving Manager. This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and self-motivated fundraising professional with an authentic enthusiasm for the performing arts to build enduring relationships and resources that will sustain the awareness of, participation in, and support for the Peace Center.


Reporting to the Vice President of Development, the Individual Giving Manager is a member of the four-person Development team, responsible for raising philanthropic investments in support of the Annual Fund ($4 million) and the 2030 Vision Campaign ($20 million). The Development team manages the Peace Center’s core patron-base, the Peacekeepers, and plans donor events and activities throughout the season. Development works collaboratively on interdepartmental initiatives and closely with the Marketing team on donor communications and campaigns.



The Peace Center is located on a six-acre campus along the Reedy River in downtown Greenville, South Carolina, a city that Condé Nast Traveler named one of the 2023 Readers’ Choice Top 10 Small Cities in the U.S. It is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of everyone it reaches, with a vision to unite people and transform lives through inspiring arts, and a purpose to entertain with excellence. Since it opened in 1990, it has served as a catalyst for Greenville’s downtown revitalization and growth and an important hub for arts and culture in Upstate South Carolina, with a statewide annual economic impact of $90 million. Comprised of seven venues, the Peace Center offers a diverse line-up of Broadway theatre, music, dance, comedy, film, and other special events and performances, presenting over 450 events for an audience of over 350,000 each year. With 9,000 subscribers and thousands more ticket buyers, the 2023-2024 Broadway season includes productions of MJ The Musical, Funny Girl, The Wiz, Tina – The Tina Turner Musical, and Mamma Mia!, among others. Its diverse lineup of music includes LeAnn Rimes, Brandi Carlile, Itzhak Perlman, Gladys Knight and more, and comedians like Kevin Hart, Steve Martin, and Martin Short. In addition, it also hosts special presentations with well-known authors and speakers like Neil deGrasse Tyson and Alton Brown.


In addition to its extensive schedule of performances, the Peace Center also engages more than 25,000 students and community members per year through Arts Education and Community Engagement initiatives like its Artist-in-Residence programs in jazz, dance, strings, voice, and theatre, enabling students to grow their skills through mentoring and instruction by world-class professional artists. The Peace Center distributes nearly 1,000 free tickets per year to students and their families at Title I schools and community partner organizations and supports numerous other performing arts organizations that use the Peace Center’s performance venues.

Since its founding, the Peace Center has been at the forefront of the transformation of Greenville, South Carolina into a thriving community with a vibrant downtown centered around arts and culture. In December 2019, the Board of Trustees approved an exciting strategic vision to realize a fully functioning ten-venue arts and entertainment campus by or before 2030 to be funded by an impending capital campaign. Included in the plans are the construction of two new venues and a total transformation that will encompass every building and ground of the Peace Center campus. Once completed, the arts and entertainment campus will further solidify Greenville as the hub of the region’s arts and music scene and will serve as a national model for the development of emerging and established performing artists.
