Fifty five percent of the Koffler Centre of the Arts annual operating funds is from members of the public. The balance of the funding is from program revenue, an annual UJA Federation allocation, the Koffler Family Foundation and government grants.
With the unprecedented growth in the Koffler’s audiences, from a participation of 4,824 in 2007 to 32,395 in 2010, the Koffler is in need of additional support. Funding from Envision will enable the Koffler to continue to provide innovative, cutting-edge programming featuring a mix of ground-breaking, critically-acclaimed exhibitions, performing arts and literary programs. The Koffler is also a leading arts educator engaging world renowned artists to teach children and adults.
The Koffler is part of the largest not-for-profit development project in Canada – the Tomorrow Campaign – which is building Sherman Campus in north Toronto. It will feature a new Koffler Centre of the Arts, a Jewish history museum, a new Leah Posluns Theatre, the Prosserman Jewish Community Centre, and more. When completed, there will be no campus like it anywhere in the world.
