Donors and Supporters

The Toronto Biennial of Art would not be possible without the generous support and civic leadership of its patrons, corporate communities, and government funders. Their foundational investments are instrumental in helping us realize and execute an ambitious project that elevates Toronto as an international destination for contemporary art. We are deeply grateful to our supporters for their vision, benevolence, and confidence.

Contribute to activating and amplifying Toronto’s vibrant arts ecosystem.
