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 partnerships, 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 for performers and Artistic Director
· Accommodations & Hospitality for all visiting performers
· Production costs for venue and equipment rentals, insurance
· Marketing & Promotions to inform people about SweetWater
· Special Projects for original composition commissions, community outreach and education initiatives
· Ongoing Operations
