Business for the Arts invites you to the launch of artsVest Toronto!

artsVest is a matching incentive and sponsorship training program designed by Business for the Arts to spark corporate engagement in arts and heritage and build strong ties between public, private and cultural sectors. It will provide small and mid-sized arts organizations with an annual budget of less than $1M free sponsorship training and a total of $330,000 in matching incentive grants. Combined with sponsorships of equal or greater value from local businesses, this will translate to an influx of over $800,000 into Toronto’s creative economy this year alone.
This full-day Sponsorship Training Workshop provides valuable tools to help small and mid-sized arts and heritage organizations secure and nurture long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships with local businesses. It also covers artsVest application procedures and guidelines and is an integral component of the program. For organizations intending to apply for the program, workshop attendance is required. Light lunch will be served.
