Donating to the Dufferin Arts Council

At this time of year, requests for donations are quite common. We ask you to consider donating to the Dufferin Arts Council this holiday season. The Dufferin Arts Council has a number of programs that you can support through your generous donation. Please direct your donation to one or more of the following:

1. Community Programs

Our Artists in the Schools program offers teachers in Dufferin County’s 23 schools the opportunity to enrich their arts curriculum by inviting local artists into the classroom to work with students in arts-related activities such as visual arts, music, dance, and drama. Through the Artist Support program, DAC assists local artists in enhancing their skills and careers through professional development and networking opportunities, and the organization of arts events. Recent examples include organizing opportunities for artists to have their work professionally photographed and the mounting of the Fresh Art, Fresh Air and Free Parking art show

Through the DAC Grants program, DAC provides support to local arts organizations, student festivals, and special arts-related events.

2. Reed T. Cooper Bursary in Visual Arts

The Reed T. Cooper Bursary in Visual Arts has been established to assist mid-career visual artists in significantly advancing or renewing their work.

3. Endowment Fund

The DAC Endowment Fund provides scholarships and bursaries to local secondary school graduates who have chosen to enroll in post secondary studies in the arts.

Thank you.
