HOW YOU CAN HELP
Our Donors Make a Difference
- "One of the biggest challenges facing talented young
artists in pursing their passion is funding. Grants from
The Hnatyshyn Foundation to emerging young artists
send a message that their talent is recognized and
their dreams can come true." Diana Krall
Most arts funding in Canada is devoted to supporting cultural institutions, performing arts companies and specific events. Only a small percentage is available for the training and development of the individual artists whose talent and creativity enhance the quality of life in our country. The Foundation's goal is to help fill this gap by providing assistance to emerging and newly established artists of exceptional talent in all spheres.
Building on a commitment of $2.5 million in matching funds from the Department of Canadian Heritage, The Hnatyshyn Foundation is raising an additional $6 million to create an endowment fund of at least $8.5 million. Income generated by this fund is used to provide grants to outstanding artists.
As a donor to The Hnatyshyn Foundation, you have the opportunity to invest in Canada's youth and to support the development of our world-class artists of tomorrow. Your contribution will help emerging musicians, singers, dancers and actors get professional-level training, or provide the resources for painters, sculptors and writers in mid-career to hone their skills or create new works of art. A future Veronica Tennant, Oscar Peterson, Christopher Plummer or Margaret Atwood may be waiting for the support and encouragement that our Foundation, with your help, will provide.
