Endowment Program Donors

The Creative Trust collectively raised almost $710,000 for endowment purposes between November 1999 and March 2002, in its inaugural Endowment Campaign.

The bulk of the fundraising was completed in the first year. With matching money from the Ontario Government’s Arts Endowment Fund Program, the 23 member companies received more than $1.4 million in endowment.

Each company’s endowment is held and administered by the Ontario Arts Council Foundation, where they will be invested in perpetuity.
