Toronto Summer Music receives only 10% of its funding from government granting agencies and nearly half of our funding comes from individual donors. Your support is critical in contributing to the cultural landscape of the city by helping us bring world-renowned performing artists to Toronto for an unparalleled combination of performances and summer music education.
Your support today will help ensure the future of music in the city, in the summer, and tomorrow!
