artsVest™ New Brunswick

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 is currently in its second year in New Brunswick. For more information on future program announcements, please email and we will add you to our mailing list!

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

Matching incentive grants are available to selected participants in New Brunswick who secure sponsorship from businesses throughout the 10-month program.

The New Brunswick program launched in April 2017 with over 50 arts managers across the province in attendance. Workshop attendees were invited to apply for the artsVest program in May and local juries approved 27 arts organizations.
