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 their 6-module e-Learning sponsorship course; and a resource bank of sponsorship tools and templates.

For the second time, the artsVest program will operate province-wide in Prince Edward Island, with over $63,000 in matching incentive grants available to selected participants who secure sponsorship from businesses throughout the 7-month program. Combined with those sponsorship dollars, this will translate to an investment impact of at least $126,000 into Prince Edward Island’s cultural economy over the program year.

Learn more about artsVest and how to apply by joining one of their Sponsorship Workshops and Information Sessions to be held in: Summerside April 19 at Conference room of the Quality Inn & Suites from 9:30 am–1:30 pm; Charlottetown April 20 at Studio 1 at the Confederation Centre from 9:30 am–1:30 pm; online April 23 at 12 pm (English) and 2 pm (French). The workshop will begin with an information session which will provide important insight on how to successfully apply to artsVest and will present information about program offerings and timelines. This will be followed by a sponsorship workshop which will provide valuable tools to help small and mid-sized cultural organizations secure long-term, mutually-beneficial partnerships with local businesses. Please note that attendance at a workshop and information session by a representative of your organization is required if you intend to apply for artsVest.

The artsVest program is open to non-profit arts, culture and heritage organizations across Prince Edward Island with an annual operating budget of under $1.5 million.
