“Our organization wouldn’t have existed without the help of BVA.  They helped us with by-laws, finding a logo and name, and guiding us through the application for non-profit status…It is a most wonderful program.”  – Annette Marsh, Taps ‘n’ Tunes Productions

Business Volunteers for the Arts® (BVA) brings the knowledge of the business world to the needs of the nonprofit arts community.

Business Volunteers for the Arts® strengthens the management of nonprofit arts organizations and provides business professionals with experiential learning by engaging them as volunteer management consultants to local non-profit art agencies.

On a project-by-project basis, volunteers contribute their professional skills and resources to enhance the management capacity of arts organizations with limited resources.  In return, business volunteers enrich their professional and personal lives by building their human networks, strengthening their business skills and becoming an integral part of the behind-the-scenes world of the arts.  BVA volunteers consult with arts and cultural organizations in areas such as strategic planning, financial management, marketing, public relations, special event planning and human resources.

Benefits of Involvement

  • Dynamic partnerships bridging the arts and business sectors strengthen the cultural and economic vitality of the greater Fort Worth area.
