Apply by March 8, 2024
Through in-depth training, individualized mentorship, and peer-to-peer sessions, artsvest Regional aims to build capacity in the area of sponsorship for small and mid-sized arts, culture, and heritage organizations. Combined with matching fund incentives for new sponsorship dollars raised, this regional program equips organizations in Saskatchewan with tools to attract and retain corporate partners, enabling them to grow and thrive.
“Each year, we learn more, apply more of the knowledge that we have gained, and grow more confident in marketing, board governance and sponsorship. Each component of the training is well presented and convenient to access.” –Grand Coteau Heritage & Cultural Centre.
The 2024 program will welcome 25 organizations, prioritizing organizations located in rural and remote communities, organizations that are BIPOC-led or serving and organizations that service systemically under-resourced and equity-seeking groups. Returning participation is permitted, with priority given to new organizations.
artsvest Regional is offered from April through December 2024 in addition to the national program. To be eligible, organizations must first enrol in artsvest National, a free ongoing training and professional development program for arts organizations across Canada. While both programs run concurrently, the Regional program offers more focused training and matching funds as an additional component.
Interested organizations are invited to submit their applications until March 8, 2024
