An ongoing monthly commitment really helps us achieve more.

The conundrum of running a non-profit Arts organization.

MOST public funding and grants are project-based, and do not include “admin” as a line item. Somehow, the projects are supposed to simply manifest on their own with nobody running the show.

Donate Now Through!

Our monthly donor program supports our general operations and allows us to have more flexibility and fluidity when responding to our community.

It builds a fund for supporting requests from other local arts groups and individuals, as well as provides us with discretionary funds for taking advantage of unforeseen opportunities that are not accounted for in our annual budget.

You can choose to donate to ANY of our funds, which are held solely for their described use:

  • General Operations
  • Arts Centre Planning Fund,
  • Youth Empowerment & Training Fund,
  • The Poet Laureate Project,
  • The Robin Hopper Ceramic Arts Bursary (via Potter’s Place).
