GRANT HISTORY

Header underline

 

The Region of Waterloo Arts Fund is a not-for-profit corporation established in 2002 by the

Regional Municipality of Waterloo. It operates at arms' length from Regional government and provides

funding for organizations and individual practitioners in all arts disciplines, including performing

(theatre, music, dance), visual, literary, film/video/media, interdisciplinary and community arts.

 

The Arts Fund is managed by a board of 14 volunteers, representing a broad spectrum

of involvement in the arts.

 

Since welcoming its first applications in 2003, the Arts Fund has invested more than $4,000,000,

representing over 800 grants, into the regional arts community.

 

In 2019, the Arts Fund received a generous gift from the Good Foundation, to be allocated per

the Arts Fund granting criteria. This support from the Good Foundation has continued and allows

the Arts Fund board to provide more grants to more artists and artistic organizations who 'make art happen'

in Waterloo Region.
