Private funds, awards and scholarships administered by the Ontario Arts Foundation
The Ontario Arts Foundation has a proven track record in managing endowment funds. Arts patrons have the assurance that their gifts will be effectively administered now and in the years to come.
The Foundation works closely with patrons to establish endowments to create awards and scholarships. These endowments reflect the interests of patrons and their creative approaches to supporting the arts.
Over $3 million in income has been paid out in support of the arts from funds established by individuals.
Leafs Dreams Arts Scholarship Recipient
From 2003 - 2011, the Ontario Arts Foundation partnered with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) on the Leafs Dreams Arts Scholarship Program. The Program provided scholarships in the arts to students who have a special ability in the arts, but not the resources to pursue that interest.
