This funding program supports arts organizations that seek to improve or implement new key operational and management systems to strengthen administrative and management functions and capacity.


Organizations may request up to $20,000.

A modification of our previous Capacity Development funding program, Arts Management Systems Funding is intended to support the researching, implementation, and upgrading of key operational management systems to increase capacity, effectiveness, and productivity. This might include Customer Relationship Management Systems (CRMs), accounting and financials processes, and other such systems used to manage the business side of arts organizations.

Systems Development Funding can support a range of work including, but not limited to:

  • Financial systems upgrades
  • Streamlining and digitizing accounting processes
  • CRM integrations and upgrades
  • Artistic planning software and departmental collaboration tools
  • Digital infrastructure upgrades
  • Digital asset management systems
  • Website infrastructure upgrades that are not cosmetic in nature
    • Patron management integration
    • Ticketing or Registration integration
    • Member supports, etc
  • Human resource systems

When applying for funding to support the above systems and processes, it is important to articulate the significant impact the work will have for the organization by being undertaken at this time.
