Did you know that the Arts + Business Council is a nonprofit? Our work supporting Philadelphia’s creative economy is made possible by individual supporters, corporate donations and philanthropy.

With funding from our supporters last year (fiscal year ending June 30, 2019), we leveraged our connections to business, legal, technology, and creative economy professionals to provide volunteer services to more than 270 nonprofit projects in the Greater Philadelphia region.

Highly Skilled Volunteers Engaged in Capacity Building Projects for the Nonprofit Sector
Million Dollars of Capacity Building Services Invested in the Nonprofit Sector
Participants Engaging in Professional Development Workshops

We can do more. Help us expand our services:

  • Support scholarships for Designing Leadership so that nonprofit leaders serving low-income communities can attend.

  • Sponsor a Business on Board participant so that we can match more business leaders with more nonprofits (we currently have a wait list of nonprofit organizations seeking matches).

  • Sponsor business and creative leaders of color to participate across our programming so that our region’s leadership reflects our communities.

  • Donate time as a volunteer for Culture:SHIFT or Business Volunteers for the Arts and lend your expertise to a nonprofit organization.
