artsVest Toronto is a matching incentive and sponsorship training program created by Business for the Arts to spark corporate engagement in arts and heritage and build strong ties between public, private and cultural sectors.
This year, the program will continue to provide small and mid-sized organizations with an annual budget of less than $1 million free sponsorship training and a total of $330,000 in matching incentive grants. Combined with sponsorships of equal or greater value from local businesses, this will translate to an influx of over $660,000 into Toronto’s creative economy this year alone.
The artsVest information sessions and sponsorship workshops will take place in the following locations:
Monday, November 23 - Downtown City Hall*
Tuesday, November 24 – Scarborough
Thursday, November 26 – Etobicoke
Friday, November 27 – North York
Monday, November 30 - Downtown Toronto Public Library*
