About Us

Toronto Arts Foundation sparks, spotlights, and supports our city's arts and cultural sector.

 
 

We are a charitable organization that sparks creative connections, spotlights artistic excellence, and supports vibrant cultural growth throughout our diverse city, through private sector investment. Our vision Creative City: Block by Block is to connect every Toronto neighbourhood with the transformative social and economic benefits of the arts. We do this through our three core pillars: 

1) SPARK: We provide arts events and mentorship throughout Toronto's neighbourhoods.

2) SPOTLIGHT: We shine a spotlight on Toronto's exceptional talent.

3 SUPPORT: We play an important role in city-building and community development. 

We believe a great city demands great art. By supporting, celebrating, financing and advocating for Toronto artists, we can improve the quality of life for all Torontonians. 

Toronto Arts Foundation is a charitable organization that relies on donors and sponsors to support its programs. Visit our Support Us section to learn how you can support us today.
