What is artsVest?
artsVest is Business for the Arts’ national flagship program that works directly with small to mid-sized arts organizations, equipping them with in-depth training, tools and mentorship relationships. These components are thoughtfully created to build sustainable partnerships between arts and businesses and to spark sponsorship opportunities. As an added incentive, artsVest participants can apply for matching grants – for every one dollar raised in sponsorship, Business for the Arts will match it with another dollar – doubling their sponsorship opportunity.
The program provides local arts organizations with:
- Free live sponsorship training workshop
- Individualized mentorship sessions with Canada’s top sponsorship experts
- Peer-to-Peer training workshops
- Webinars, marketing and branding tutorials
- Access to our 6-module e-Learning sponsorship course
- A resource bank of sponsorship tools and templates
For the second time, the artsVest program will operate province-wide on PEI, with over $67,000 in matching incentive grants available to selected participants who secure sponsorship from businesses throughout the 7-month program.
Combined with those sponsorship dollars, this will translate to an investment impact of at least $134,000 into PEI’s cultural economy over the program year.
