Working collaboratively, Ontario Arts Council, Ontario Trillium Foundation, Toronto Arts Council, and the Metcalf Foundation have committed to move forward the significant discussion already occurring around the topic of shared charitable platforms in the arts sector. Our hope is to enable the establishment of a shared charitable platform pilot project by providing significant, multi-year support.
As a first stage in this process, the funding partners are releasing a Request for Expressions of Interest. Organizations and individuals in the arts who are interested in shared chartiable platform work are invited to submit an Expression of Interest to attend a one-day workshop on Thursday, June 25th. This event will comprise part of the larger application process.
The June 25th session is intended:
- to further the conversation around shared charitable platforms,
- to help shape the process to apply for funding for both funders and potential applicants, and
- to incent some possible collaborative activities.
The deadline for responding to the RFEOI is Tuesday, May 26th. Click here for more information or to view the full RFEOI.
