artsVest Saskatchewan Sponsorship Workshop and Information Session

November 21, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

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 continue in Saskatchewan for its sixth year from 2016-17, providing local arts cultural 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

A total of $330,000 in matching incentive grants is available to selected participants in Toronto 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 $660,000 into Saskatchewan’s cultural economy over the period of one program year.
