For Business Professionals

Business professionals who participate in Business Volunteers for the Arts expand their skills and networks while lending much-needed and valued support to our cultural community. The ideal volunteer has business expertise in at least one specific area ⁠— accounting, finance, human resources, marketing, communications and strategy, among other areas ⁠— and possesses creativity, initiative, and flexibility.

We’ve mastered the art of the match, and we know how to help you and your company do good business in the region. Successful candidates have a strong interest in the arts and culture and community engagement. Candidates should be willing to commit 5 to 10 hours a month on a consulting project; pro bono projects typically take 3 to 12 months to complete.

Past volunteers do not need to re-apply. Please reach out to Tommy Butler at (215) 790-3827 or [email protected] if you are interested in participating again this year.
