As a not-for-profit organization we rely on the generosity of private and public donors to create our innovative programming. Please consider investing in the integration of arts, science and technology by giving to one of our donation programs listed below.


The Subtle Technologist program aims to cultivate an engaged network of supporters who are acknowledged publicly on our website and within newsletters to our subscriber base.

Each of the 4 set giving levels in the program provides clear examples of how specific donation amounts can be utilized and encourages targeted fundraising that will go directly towards programming.

While making your donation, you have the option of electing to create an online donor profile for a newsletter feature. If you elect this option, a staff member will follow-up via e-mail soon after.

Level 1 | AMPLIFIER ($35.00)
A one-time donation of $35 provides funding for:

  • A bursary for an underprivileged individual to attend an engaging workshop
  • A Facebook Ad or a Google AdWord to more effectively promote festival events/participants

Level 2 | CONDUCER ($75.00)

A donation to our general fund supports ongoing programs like our annual festival but also supplements special projects and development initiatives like:

  • our young and emerging artist commissioning fund: y-AXIS
  • facilities and venue rentals
  • research activities and professional development
  • equipment acquisitions


All donations are tax-deductible for the maximum eligible amount.

* Charitable donation tax credit estimates do not take into account all possible tax situations. The charitable tax credit is non-refundable and can be used to reduce your income tax for a given tax year.
