Donors and Supporters: 2019–2022

The Toronto Biennial of Art would not be possible without the generosity of its patrons, corporate partners, and government funders. Only with the support of arts lovers, city-builders, and community leaders can we realize our mission of making art accessible to everyone and elevate Toronto as an international destination for contemporary art. We are deeply grateful to all of those who have contributed to make the Biennial possible.
