Why is your donation important?

SweetWater has an annual budget of $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. Annually SweetWater needs to raise $45,000 from individual donors and corporate sponsors.


How does your donation make a difference?

The funds raised support:

· Artistic Fees — performers and Artistic Director

· Accommodations & Hospitality — for all visiting performers

· Production costs — venue and equipment rentals, insurance

· Marketing & Promotions — to get the word out about the SweetWater 2016
