Transforming Canada through the performing arts.

The National Arts Centre Foundation raises funds to support the National Arts Centre’s work in performance, creation and learning across Canada. Since its founding in 2000, the National Arts Centre Foundation has raised over $100 million to enrich the lives of Canadians through the performing arts and champion our country’s artists, students and educators.

Mission

To inspire Canadians to support the National Arts Centre’s priorities in performance, creation and learning by:

  • Strategically planning meaningful ways to engage donors, potential donors and volunteers;
  • Developing annual fundraising plans to achieve maximum support for the performing arts and education activities of  the NAC;
  • Designing and implementing stewardship plans to ensure long term donor relationships;
  • Raising the profile of the NAC and promoting and supporting the performing arts across Canada; and
  • Becoming a recognized leader in philanthropy through adoption of best practices and commitment to our values.
  • Performance

    Supporting Performance

    By supporting performance at the NAC you give hundreds of established and emerging artists the opportunity to live their passion and share it with countless people across the country. 

  • Creation

    Supporting creation

    Your gift in support of creation gives artists space and time they need to tell their powerful stories through music, theatre or dance. 

  • Learning

    National Youth and Education Trust

    Give Canada’s next generation of artists the chance to grow, master their art, and take their rightful place in the spotlight.

  • The CEO National Fund

    The CEO National Fund supports a wide range of performing arts initiatives that encourage artistic excellence and share performance, creation and learning with all Canadians

  • Share the Spirit

    Together with our Community Partners, the NAC will Share the Spirit by offering free concerts, dance and theatre tickets to deserving families.

  • Support this year’s NAC Gala

    This event is the NAC’s signature fundraising event and a highlight of the Ottawa social season. Proceeds raised through the NAC Gala are directed entirely to the National Youth and Education Trust.
