Consultancy Match Program                    

The Business Volunteers for the Arts (BVA) Consultancy Match Program recruits, trains and places professionals from the business community to work with nonprofit arts and cultural organizations as pro bono management consultants. Continuing the Arts & Business Council of Rhode Islandís tradition of facilitating mutually beneficial partnerships between the arts and business sectors, this program enhances the capacity of arts and cultural nonprofits while enriching the experiences business professionals.

Since 1989, the BVA program has provided over $6 million dollars in professional consultation services to over 150 non-profit arts, cultural and educational organizations across Rhode Island. More than 250 volunteers with a wide range of skills and expertise have contributed as BVAs. From assisting a board of directors with a strategic planning process to designing materials for an event, from developing a marketing plan to creating a website, our volunteers work to ensure that Rhode Island’s arts and cultural organizations are alive, well and contributing positively to the economic and social well-being of the state.
