Financial Services System

Arts and culture organizations of all sizes need sound financial management – the tools to plan well and maximize the benefits of every dollar earned and spent. This requires expertise and experience that many mid-sized and small organizations lack. The Financial Services System is your solution!

CultureSource (CS) in partnership with Apparatus Solutions Inc. has created a comprehensive, permanent system of services to help nonprofit arts and culture members of CultureSource.

The Financial Services System program has three components:

  1. An educational program, managed by CultureSource.
  2. Accounting and financial consulting services provided by Apparatus.
  3. Financial peer networking opportunities for building supportive relationships and sharing expertise.


The goal of the Financial Services Alliance is to strengthen the capacity of CultureSource members, by providing financial and administrative resources including educational programs and tools; technical assistance and peer support; and financial/transactional management.

Your investment in this effort will give you better insight into your current financial position; your weaknesses and how to improve them; places and people to turn to for all levels of assistance; and peace of mind for you, your board, and your donors. We understand the needs of arts and culture organizations better than anyone else in the region and are harnessing the resources to make your business as strong as your programming!
