A&B Accepting applications now

February 3, 2013

Arts & Business Scotland New Arts Sponsorship Grants match eligible first time business sponsorships of the arts. For every £1 of sponsorship arts applicants can receive £1 of match funding up to a maximum of £40,000 in one year.

The aim of the scheme is to encourage new business sponsorship of the arts within Scotland and to encourage arts organisations to approach the business sector, building mutually beneficial relationships.

‘Sponsorship’ is defined as the payment to an arts organisation by a business in exchange for agreed benefits such as promotion of the business’ name, its products or services. Sponsorship is part of a business’ general promotional expenditure. It can encompass a sense of corporate social responsibility (CSR) or staff development.

” There was an evident synergy between what our Business Sponsor wanted and what we could offer. The Sponsor seems inclined to favour a more subtle approach to publicity and has a diverse customer target group”

(Grant recipient Ann Fleming, Vision Mechanics)
