DonateGrowing Arts and Culture in York Region.


Thank you to our funders and partners!



The York Region Arts Council is grateful for the support of individuals who believe in the importance and beauty of art. The generosity of volunteers and donors is instrumental to the success of the York Region Arts Council.

Volunteer with Us

Volunteers provide a constant source of energy and enthusiasm to YRAC. Our volunteers enjoy being in an environment where art is the primary focus and take pleasure in being able to contribute and lend a hand to us. With various opportunities available, there are many rewards for our volunteers in addition to the chance to support the arts council with your time, energy and skills.

There is always something exciting going on at YRAC, and as a volunteer you can be part of the action.

Ways to Volunteer with Us


We hold many different events throughout the year. There are annual events such as the YRAC Arts and Culture Conference, and Fundraising Gala Dinner as well as a range of smaller and larger events throughout the year.


There is always work to be done in our busy administrative office. Volunteers perform a variety of clerical duties including: data entry, word processing, filing, sorting, collating, and stuffing envelopes for mailings.

Help us Grow

The York Region Arts Council (YRAC) is entering a new and exciting phase in 2015 with new initiatives which will further strengthen and support artists and arts organizations. Our work is made possible by the dedication of our staff and volunteers, and the generous patronage of our funders and donors.

As a charitable, not-for-profit organization, YRAC actively seeks partnerships with public supporters, individuals, corporations and foundations. Without your strong partnership, we would not be able to grow our quality programming. Please consider making an individual donation below. 

As a donor, you will support continued grown and artistic excellence in York Region as we work to reach artists directly and impact the arts so that we at YRAC can engage the community fully. Your generosity will help support and champion a vibrant, dynamic arts community within York Region and enrich the lives of our citizens and the success of the York Region Arts Council.
