Business Volunteers for the Arts is a matching service which connects volunteers from the private and public sectors with local artists and arts organizations.
Volunteers offer pro bono time and services to help arts professionals and practitioners work through roadblocks and develop sound business practices. Our goals? To enhance the sustainability of the arts sector, and to strengthen creative networks throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. In 2019, we facilitated $64,400 worth of pro bono support for the arts through this program.
Volunteers offer 1-5 hours per month and are always welcome to decline when we reach out if it’s not a good time and/or a good fit. Once a volunteer’s maximum hours/month have been reached, we will not reach out again until the year is up.
