Support the Ottawa Arts Council

The Ottawa Arts Council is committed to providing opportunities for development and growth of local arts professionals, and relies on community donations and corporate sponsorships in order to achieve this. Your support is critical to our success.

There are numerous ways to donate – online, by phone, by mail or in person. If you have any questions email us

All donations to the Ottawa Arts Council are eligible for a charitable tax receipt, and are acknowledged in our Annual Report.


Sponsorship is a unique way for you to reach out to the entire Ottawa arts community, while supporting arts organizations and the careers of local artists.

Put your company’s resources behind our efforts, while building your brand and promoting your business. Your contribution will support the Ottawa Arts Council’s work of serving our arts community, providing opportunities for artists to thrive in their fields.

Sponsorships come in many forms, and there are many opportunities for companies of all sizes. Please contact Sharon Diamond to learn more about getting your company involved.

Where Will My Money Go?

Some areas your contribution will go toward are:

We thank those sponsors who we have worked closely with, and always welcome new partnerships.
