Be a Game-Changer

Our donors provide essential support to the artists and leaders enrolled in Banff Centre programs who are here to learn, create, develop solutions, and to make the impossible possible.

One of our core values is that we accept program participants based on their level of creative or leadership potential, not their level of financial resources. We want to reduce the financial burden as much as we can for every artist, as well as for Indigenous, community, and creative industry leaders. You can help us improve every worthy participant's access to the transformative programs of The Banff Centre.

Play a unique role at the intersection of art and ideas. Get involved today.

Our goals:

Access, excellence, Made in Banff. Shared with the World.

Ignite Creative Potential

The Banff Centre has entered an exciting period of growth as we renew our arts and leadership programming and the facilities that support all our programing. At the Centre, we are exploring new ways to serve the creative minds who come here striving to achieve greater cultural, social, and environmental impact. Creativity and innovation are more important than ever and your support can create lasting change.

"The Banff Centre has been here for (more than) 80 years because of the vision and the generosity of the generations who've gone before me ... It's my turn to make sure it's here for another 80 years."

—Bryan Price, donor since 2009
