What is the Endowment Fund?

The Drayton Entertainment Endowment Fund was created as a permanent financial resource to ensure the long-term viability of one of the largest not-for-profit charitable arts organizations in Canada. It is administered through the Ontario Arts Foundation.

All donations to this vital fund remain in it forever. The principal is carefully invested, while the interest generated provides income support for various artistic and development programs on an annual basis, including:

Why Donate Now to the Endowment Fund?

All endowment gifts make a difference, because together they form a strong foundation that continues to grow for years to come. The fund is made up of a pool of unrestricted dollars (i.e. general endowments), as well as a number of individually named funds restricted for certain purposes.

What's really exciting is that any donation you make towards endowment will double in value, due to a federal government matching funds initiative.

Recently, we raised over $125,000 for the Youth Programs Endowment Initiative in memory of John Kerr, with interest income from that fund resulting in a minimum annual payout of $10,000+ in perpetuity to support these vital youth programs.
