Donate to East End Arts Today!  

East End Arts provides support to emerging and established local artists, networks community and artistic interests, and creates new arts programming for people of all ages and backgrounds. Our arts hub serves the east end of Toronto, which includes neighbourhoods like Old East York, Danforth Village, The Beaches, East China Town and more!

There are three easy ways to help East End Arts grow and allow us to continue to engage local communities through the arts. Please make note of the specific instructions around donating online through Canada Helps, until we secure our own charitable registration number:

IMPORTANT: Because of this, you must remember to choose ‘East End Arts’ from the list of fund/designations when prompted (‘Special Initiative: East End Arts’ on the drop down menu).
