Festival Donors

Luminato Festival Toronto is proud to recognize our festival donors. For the past 10 years, they have helped us develop, support and showcase extraordinary art for diverse and curious audiences. More importantly, they have kept the majority of our programs free for everyone to enjoy. For Luminato’s 10th anniversary, a number of individuals and families have once again pledged their support to ensure the continued strength and potential of Luminato. We are so grateful for their commitment.

Founding Luminaries

From the very beginning, donors have been at the heart of Luminato. Among the first to stand behind the Festival were the Founding Luminaries: art patrons and civic builders who share the vision of making Luminato one of the most important annual multi-arts festivals on the world stage. We remain truly grateful to the following individuals and organizations for their generosity.
