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 participants are accepted into programs based on their creative ability and leadership potential, not their financial capacity. Our long term goal is to provide 100 per cent funding to every artist in a Banff Centre program, and to provide financial support for Indigenous, community, and creative industry leaders. You can help us reach that goal.

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
