Toronto Arts Foundation
We believe that a great city demands great art. By supporting, celebrating, financing, and advocating for Toronto’s artists, we can improve the quality of life for all Torontonians. Our funds are raised through donations, sponsorships, and grants. We create innovative programs that support all artists: from world-renowned painters to young singers at the Regent Park School of Music, and from contemporary galleries and performing arts companies to the arts festivals that enrich our city and our lives.

Thoughts about art and community:
From street safety by reclaiming parks and street corners for community use, from engagement of disaffected teens to building social cohesiveness, artists bring fresh, creative energy into the most beleaguered areas of the city. Artists are providing an incredible array of community-engaged professional arts programming across the city of Toronto; in our parks, apartment buildings, public spaces, libraries, theatres, storefronts and more.
