About artsVest™ B.C.

Please note the most recent BC program completed in early 2018. For more information on future program announcements, please email artsvest@businessforthearts.org and we will add you to our mailing list!

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
  • resource bank of sponsorship tools and templates

artsVest™ British Columbia is a sponsorship training and matching incentive program of Business for the Arts and is delivered with funding support from the Government of Canada, the Government of British Columbia and the City of Kelowna.
