About Confederation Centre of The Arts:
Founded in 1964 as Canada’s National Memorial to the Fathers of Confederation, who gathered at Province House in 1864 to discuss the creation of Canada, Fathers of Confederation Buildings Trust now operates as Confederation Centre of The Arts (CCOA). CCOA aims to engage and empower the imagination of youth; to honour the vision of the Founders of Canada; to strengthen Canada’s national identity; and to increase the cultural wealth of all Canadians. It showcases Canadian visual and performing arts by operating several theatres, an art gallery and the Charlottetown Festival.
In the 2015 season, the Confederation Centre of the Arts launched multiple theatre, gallery and heritage initiatives. In 2015, CCOA worked with the Stratford Festival and the National Arts Centre to present Alice Through the Looking-Glass and with Edmonton’s Citadel Theatre to present Evangeline. Canada’s longest running production, Anne of Green Gables - The Musical, entered its 52nd season in 2016.
The Confederation Centre Art Gallery saw a 25% increase in overall visitation in F2016. The gallery collaborated with several Canadian galleries and art leaders to create exhibitions showcasing Canadian artists. Its arts education programs saw almost 600 students participate in Art Discovery Days and over 1,700 elementary school children enjoy live theatre. Its heritage program saw more than 14,000 people visit its replica of the historic Confederation Chamber.
Confederation Centre of the Arts is considered a medium-cap charity with $1.8m in donations. Its administrative costs stand at 8% of revenues and fundraising costs are 17% of donations. For every dollar donated, 75 cents goes to the cause, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. Ci consolidated assets from the CCOA and its foundation to calculate funding reserves of $10.9m. These funds can cover program costs for a little under one year.
