Building a Foundation for the Arts

In 2016, the Ontario Arts Foundation celebrated 25 years of serving the arts and artists in Ontario.  Our partners in this endeavour have been philanthropists and patrons of the arts who have set up funds and served on our board of directors, various levels of government through matching funds, and the arts organizations themselves. We are passionately committed to working towards the increased stability of the arts infrastructure in Ontario.  Come talk to us and see how together we can make a difference!

Elizabeth L. Gordon Art Program
The Ontario Arts Foundation and the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation are pleased to announce the renewal of the Elizabeth L. Gordon Art Program.

The Program aims to foster a broader appreciation of Canadian visual art and artists by assisting public art galleries and museums in Ontario to grow their permanent collections, increase the public’s knowledge of collecting and permanent collections, and support community engagement between a gallery or museum and its local community.
