What is artvest?

artsvest is Business / Arts signature mentorship training program designed to build capacity in Canada’s cultural sector.  artsvest provides small to mid-sized arts, culture and heritage organizations with resources, expertise and training in marketing, board governance and sponsorship along with matching incentive funds and peer-to-peer networking. 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 / Arts will match it with another dollar - doubling their sponsorship opportunity. The program will continue in Toronto for its fifth year from 2019-2020, providing local arts cultural and heritage organizations with:

  • Sponsorship training workshop
  • Individualized mentorship sessions with expert coaches and mentors who provide tools and resources on topics including marketing, board governance and sponsorship.
  • Peer-to-Peer training Workshops
  • Group mentorship, webinars, marketing and branding tutorials
  • A resource bank of sponsorship tools and templates

There is no cost to participants and the commitment to the artsvest  program is approximately one year.

A total of $330,000 in matching incentive grants is available to selected participants who secure sponsorship from businesses throughout the 10-month program. Combined with sponsorships from local businesses, this will translate to an investment impact of at least $660,000 into Toronto's cultural economy over the period of one program year.

SESSION DESCRIPTION

artsvest Information Session

This information session is mandatory for all organizations, whether you are new or returning to artsvest. We have made significant program changes that will be announced during this time.

The information session will provide important insight about how to successfully apply to artsvest 2019-2020, and will present information about program offerings and timelines.  


Recommendations for Success and Eligibility Requirements  

  • The artsvest program is open to local arts, culture and heritage organizations with an annual budget of under $1.5M.

  • We strongly recommend that at least 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 Toronto artsvest program is made possible with funding from the Government of Canada and the Toronto Arts Council.
