Mundi Project Board Member
Mundi Project is looking for a passionate individual who is inspired by music and believes in the power of music to break down barriers and build communities (whether they feel they possess musical talent or not!).
Founding Year: 2006
Organization’s Mission: Mundi Project actively breaks down socioeconomic and generational barriers by providing quality music experiences for all.
Organization’s Programs and Services:
- Harmony Hub: Pay-what-you-can classes in piano and voice in Spring, Summer, and Fall held at the facilities of our community partners.
- Piano Bank: Community members may donate or apply for a quality acoustic piano. We cover moving and first tuning costs. To date, we have placed 265 pianos!
- Mundi Project Presents: A community outreach program that offers free music workshops to K-12 schools and other community partners.
Organization’s Race, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Statement: Music has the power to break down barriers, tell stories, and bring diverse individuals together. Through music all people, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious creed, socioeconomic status, or political affiliation can tell their stories. We strive to create safe and brave spaces for our community to explore, express, and engage through music. We stand ready to listen, learn, and grow with a common desire to bring forth an equitable and inclusive society.
Description of this Board Position:
- Attend monthly board meetings and provide insight and guidance to the Executive Director on matters including but not limited to: budgets & financials, programming and events, marketing, organizational leadership, and staffing.
- Act as a representative for Mundi Project in the community.
- Support Mundi Project programs and services by attending other events and meetings as needed (these may include fundraising galas, Mundi Project programs, meeting with state and local civic leaders, etc.).
Benefits of Serving with Mundi Project:
- Did you benefit as a child (or an adult!) by having access to music programs or education? Our board members witness firsthand how our programs provide those same benefits to the underserved populations in our community.
- The perfect chance for someone who is passionate about music but perhaps not working in music as an occupation. By joining the board, you can connect with the largest music & arts community along the Wasatch Front — your love of music doesn’t have to end with high school band or choir!
- Connect and build relationships with other board members and the greater Mundi community
- A chance to give back to your community.
