About National Arts Centre Foundation:
Canada’s National Arts Centre Foundation’s (NACF) mission is to inspire Canadians to support the National Arts Centre’s (NAC) priorities in performance, creation and learning. It raises funds for supporting performing arts and education activities of the NAC. NACF is celebrating a decade of helping NAC enrich the lives of Canadians through the performing arts.
Based on the priorities of NAC, NACF raises funds for its National Performance Trust (NPT), National Creators Trust (NCT), and National Youth and Education Trust (NYET). Through NPT, NACF focuses on supporting performance activities, virtual and live on-stage performances at NAC and across Canada through performances in music, dance and theatre, the NAC Orchestra tours, Zone Théâtrales and the biennial Scene festivals. NCT focuses on promoting contemporary Canadian artistic voices on the national stage through programs such as NAC’s English Theatre National Company and National Young Company. NYET helps the NAC fund education programs for young people across Canada through programs such as NAC Summer Music Institute and NAC Music Alive Program. 41% of total funds raised were designated to the NYET which funded more than 20 initiatives in F2012.
