Business and Arts South Africa Supporting Grant Programme is designed for artists/arts organisations and businesses to assist in activating sponsorship for a cross-section of arts projects in different regions of the country. This is done by providing financial support to a project that is in an already existing relationship between a business and an arts organisation.

To apply for a BASA Supporting Grant, both the arts applicant and the sponsor must complete the application forms, which are designed to encourage the two partners to work together and identify areas of potential benefit. BASA allocates funds to the project once it has assessed how the partnership benefits both the sponsor and the recipient.

Once the grants have been approved, the projects and sponsors can be further profiled through Business and Arts South Africa’s media partners.

In addition, successful partnerships are encouraged to enter the BASA Awards
