The following is excerpted from a press release issued by Business for the Arts.
artsVest works directly with small to mid-sized arts organizations, equipping them with in-depth training, tools and mentorship relationships. Business for the Arts’ national flagship program, artsVest is created to build sustainable partnerships between arts and businesses and to spark sponsorship opportunities. As 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.
