BVA Year in Review

It’s been another successful year for the Business Volunteers for the Arts program! In this calendar year, we brought on 41 new BVA consultants and trained 13 new Team Leads. Our consultants engaged in 27 pro bono consulting projects for our clients.  The total number of hours contributed by our consultants topped at 1,917, valued at $287,550!  A huge number for our clients!

Are you a not for profit arts organization that is looking for help with your management areas and administration but not sure where to start? We’d love to work with you! The Arts & Business Council’s services to arts organizations include management consulting, educational labs, and board member training and matching. These programs are built to help Chicago-area arts nonprofits improve managerial and organizational capability.  Fill out a new client application here.  Here’s what Anne Kasdorf from The Space Movement Project has to say about working with a A&BC:
