TODAY is the Last Day to Get Your Donation Matched!
Can you imagine getting through the pandemic without creating or consuming art? When we need it the most, art is there for us. We turn to the arts when we need help, and now the arts need your help.
Because of the pandemic, charities, non-profits, grassroots groups, and artists are facing tremendous financial loss, with programming and events cancelled, private and public funds diverted into emergency responses, and many individuals unable to donate to and spend on the arts as they used to. Although times are unpredictable, giving back isn’t cancelled, and is needed now more than ever. Giving to ArtReach is an investment in the arts and the young people that make them matter. Since 2006, we’ve given $4 million to artists and community arts projects across Toronto. We ask you now to make a donation in support of ArtReach. We welcome contributions of any amount- every dollar helps. Today is the last day to have your donation to ArtReach matched! Donations made until 11:59pm tonight will be matched by the generous donors on our Advisory Committee.
Head to artreach.org/donate to give now!
