Funding for this phase of the artsvest program, which will run from 2019 to 2021, is provided by Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Edmonton Arts Council, and Calgary Arts Development, along with Canadian Heritage.

A national matching incentive and mentorship training program for small and medium arts, cultural and heritage organizations across Canada, artsvest uses a unique funding model that leverages federal and local government funding to trigger direct, private sector contributions.

It was first launched in 2005 and to date, over 1,800 organizations from across Canada have participated in artsvest, forming over 4,800 partnerships with business and raising over $21M in new private sector investment. The overall impact of artsvest to Canada’s cultural sector is $29.25M.

Participants benefit from one-on-one, peer-to-peer and group mentorship sessions that provide comprehensive training, resources, and expertise in sponsorship, marketing and board governance. artsvest also provides matching funds that give organizations added incentive to maximize business support in the cultural sector and establish long-term successful business and arts partnerships.
