Event Details

You’re invited to participate in artsVest in Alberta!

What is artsVest?

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 our 6-module e-Learning sponsorship course
  • resource bank of sponsorship tools and templates

For the first time, the program, artsVest will operate province-wide in Alberta, with over $300,000 in matching incentive grants available to selected participants 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 $600,000 into Alberta's cultural economy over the period of one program year.

For more information on the program and to view past results from other regions, visit www.artsvest.com.

artsVest Information Session and Workshop

The afternoon 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. It explores the basics of sponsorship, answering the following questions: 

  • What is the difference between a donation and sponsorship?
  • How can I identify prospects in my community to partner with?
  • How do I create an effective sponsorship proposal?
  • How do I close the deal? 

All levels of sponsorship experience are welcome!

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!

If a representative from your organization is unable to attend this session in-person due to the distance, please select the online date below.


Recommendations for Success and Eligibility Requirements 

  • The artsVest program for is open to arts, culture and heritage organizations across Alberta with an annual operating budget of under $1.5 million. Please contact Alberta Program Manager Allison Moore for more details at allison@businessforthearts.org.
  • We strongly recommend that two team members attend the artsVest workshop on behalf of your organization. Program trends indicate that having more than one team member attend will improve your success in your application and eventual fundraising efforts. Note that only staff, board members and volunteers are eligible to attend on behalf of the organization. Temporary staff and interns are not eligible.
  • The individuals attending the workshop must be the ones spearheading the artsVest program for your organization.
