artsVest™ Saskatchewan is a sponsorship training and matching incentive program of Business for the Arts and is delivered with funding support from the Government of Canada and the Government of Saskatchewan Ministry of Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport.
The program will continue to provide small and mid-sized organizations with an annual budget of less than $1.5 million free sponsorship training and a total of $330,000 in matching incentive grants. Combined with sponsorships of equal or greater value from local businesses, this will translate to an influx of over $660,000 into Saskatchewan’s creative economy this year alone.
Participants who attended November/December 2015 workshops were invited to apply for artsVest Saskatchewan. In February, 68 organizations were approved to participate in ongoing mentorship and were pre-approved for up to $20,000 in matching funds. The full list of this year’s organizations can be found here.
Participating organizations must submit all necessary documents to receive their matching funds by September 14th, 2016 at 5PM CT.
