Why is your donation important?

SweetWater has an annual budget just over $100,000. A third is supported by grants from Canadian Heritage, Ontario Arts Council, other public funding, and various private foundations. The balance comes from ticket sales, corporate sponsorships, and the generosity of our many donors. SweetWater annually needs to raise over $45,000 from individual donors and corporate sponsors.

The funds raised support:

· Artistic Fees — performers and Artistic Director

· Accommodations & Hospitality — for all visiting performers
