Our mandate is to enable emerging and professional artists in all disciplines, bridge cultures and build strong & healthy communities through the arts.

Make A Donation

As a charitable cultural organization, the North Vancouver Community Arts Council relies on the committed funding of our government partners and the generosity of local businesses, groups and individuals.

Your donation supports the variety of community programming by the North Vancouver Community Arts Council, ensuring that we can continue to positively impact the lives of members of our community through the arts, and support emerging and established artists. Many of our programmes and events are heavily subsidized or free, which encourages participation by the greatest number of people.



As a registered charity, we are able to provide a tax receipt for any gift of $20 or more. We also accept donations by mail, by phone, or in person.

We are particularly committed to creating opportunities for youth, and to that end established the Youth Cultural Development Fund in 1993. The income from this Fund is used by the Arts Council to subsidize low-income families, increasing accessibility to our programmes. The fund can accept donations from all sources. Donations to this fund are accepted through the North Shore Community Foundation.
