Stratford, St Marys and Perth County

Congratulations to Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County artsVest participants for the outstanding partnerships created between local businesses and cultural organizations in 2010.

In the spring of 2010, with funding from the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Business for the Arts entered Stratford, offering $50K in matching funds to encourage business sponsorship and providing sponsorship training for local cultural organizations. The public, private and cultural leaders of Stratford, Perth County & St. Mary’s rallied behind the cause to strengthen arts and culture locally by building partnerships between business and the arts.

The results? 8 cultural organizations partnered with 27 local businesses, stimulating over $114K in sponsorship of arts and culture.
