Support our Work

Our magazine and all our wonderful programs are only possible because of the support of our incredibly generous donors and sponsors. In addition to publishing the award-winning Canadian Art magazine, website and tablet, we also provide unparalleled educational programming: the Reel Artists Film Festival for example; the International Speakers’ Series, and Gallery Hop, a day of free tours of galleries throughout the city, now held in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.

Support the Canadian Art Foundation with a donation to our annual giving campaign and demonstrate that you believe in our work and in the importance of Canadian art and artists to all our lives.

We offer significant corporate sponsorship opportunities to support our annual programs and high-profile events. Learn more about how to become a sponsor.

Thank you to all our 2013 donors and sponsors, who are also recognized in the Spring 2014 issue of Canadian Art.

Consider becoming a member of the Canadian Art Foundation Patron’s Club and take advantage of a range of benefits exclusive to club members. Throughout the year the Patron’s Club organizes a variety of excursions for its art-enthusiast members. Events include tours of artists’ studios, visits to private and corporate collections, dinners with speakers of note and trips to art fairs.
