Support the Arts

Neighbourhood Arts Network is a strategic initiative of Toronto Arts Foundation, developed as a direct response to issues confronting Toronto’s artists and the desire to connect artists to each other and to valuable resources through professional development and networking opportunities.  

With the support of our generous donors and sponsors, Toronto Arts Foundation continues to design, develop and implement initiatives like Neighbourhood Arts Network. Through this ongoing work, we have a clear understanding of the challenges of the artistic community as well as the deep appreciation Toronto’s residents have for the arts.  

Share your love of the arts by directing your gift to an initiative that’s meaningful to you. 

If you are a local arts-lover, city-builder, community-booster, or arts patron and want to make a positive impact on your city, you can make a difference today by making a gift in support of the work of Toronto Arts Foundation.  

Your tax-deductible gift supports our programs, awards and research and allows us to continue fulfilling our vision, Creative City: Block by Block, to connect every Toronto neighbourhood with the transformative social and economic benefits of the arts.
