Funding for Arts Organizations
With thanks to a one-million-dollar contribution from the Hal Jackman Foundation, eighty small and mid-sized charitable arts organizations affected by depleted earned revenue due to COVID-19 closures are receiving financial support.
The eighty arts organizations that have received these funds, all with budgets under 6 million dollars and representing a range of artistic disciplines and operating across the city, were selected by the directors of the Hal Jackman Foundation. These unrestricted contributions will inject these valued arts organizations with much needed support in this time of need. Toronto Arts Foundation is assisting with the process, providing context, data and expediting the delivery of funds. To read the press release about this contribution, please click here.
