Support our Work

Support the Canadian Art Foundation with a donation to our annual giving campaign and help us promote the understanding and appreciation of the visual arts in Canada. Since its establishment in 1991, the Canadian Art Foundation has grown to deliver numerous educational programs for youth and adults, in addition to the publication of Canadian Art magazine. This diversity now makes the Canadian Art Foundation the ultimate portal for the exposure of visual arts in Canada. All donations are appreciated and are tax deductible.
