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 will launch in 2017 in the following New Brunswick communities and we invite you to register via the following links:

A total of $89,000 in matching incentive grants is available to selected participants in New Brunswick who secure sponsorship from businesses throughout the 10-month program. Combined with those sponsorship dollars, this will translate to an investment impact of at least $170,000 into New Brunswick’s cultural economy over the period of one program year.
artsVest™ is delivered in New Brunswick with funding support from the Government of Canada and the Government of New Brunswick.
