Business Volunteers for the Arts®
Business Volunteers for the Arts® (BVA) recruits skilled professionals, trains them in nonprofit practice, and matches them with nonprofits in need of management assistance. Consultants are thoroughly vetted, highly-qualified individuals who have subject-matter expertise and a demonstrated commitment to the arts.
Are Your Ready for a Project?
Consultants work in groups of 2-5 and lend their abilities in a variety of business-related project areas, including:
- Board/Staff Retreat Facilitations
- Board Roles/Responsibilities
- Business Plans
- Communication Plans
- Data Analysis

- Human Resources
- Job Descriptions/Organizational Chart
- Market Research

BVA project areas not currently offered: Fundraising, legal, graphic design, information technology, and board recruitment planning
Time commitment is dependent on the nature of the project. Most projects between 2-6 months. Clients and consultants agree on an anticipated completion date–and outcome–prior to the project start.
