artsVest™ Mentorship

Business for the Arts’ flagship artsVest program has been successfully stimulating business sponsorship and corporate engagement in arts and culture since 2002. As a unique matching incentive and training program, artsVest offers small to mid-sized arts and culture organizations the opportunity to benefit from professional development in the field of corporate sponsorship through live workshops and e-tutorials, and most recently, through artsVest Mentorship!

artsVest Mentorship offers participating artsVest organizations an exciting opportunity to access experts in the field to receive support and guidance on topics in sponsorship and board governance* through a combination of group, peer, and one-on-one mentoring sessions. Through monthly training, mentees are equipped with further tools to develop sponsorship opportunities with local business and build organizational capacity!

Owing to the generous funding awarded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation in 2014, Business for the Arts was able to regionally pilot mentorship training with the artsVest Ontario Mentorship Program; with a successful first year in tow, mentorship training will newly extend to reach artsVest organizations across Canada.

*Board governance mentorship is only available for artsVest Ontario.
