Norm Foster Theatre Festival, Great Canadian Giving Challenge

The 2020 Great Canadian Giving Challenge is a VERY unique platform!   

Arts Organizations and charities across Canada are facing fundraising shortfalls and a number of operational challenges due to COVID-19 and the associated social distancing restrictions - many theatres are in danger of closing their doors.

To help charities like The Foster Festival survive and continue to provide our heartfelt experiences you have grown to love, CanadaHelps has launched the sixth annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge with an increased grand prize.

Starting June 1, 2020, every $1 you donate to our charity throughout the month of June via CanadaHelps.org counts as a ballot to help us win $20,000. Every dollar truly does count!

Donate to the initiative(s) that appeals to you the most - your contribution will go directly to the areas you are most passionate about.

  1. Help bring together a creative team of Actors, Designers & Directors to create Norm’s original works.
  2. Help secure resources to bring new work to the stage.
  3. Help provide training and education through mentorships.

When making a donation, we invite you to indicate in the comments which initiative(s) you would like your contribution to directly support.


#GivingChallengeCA begins on June 1, 2020 and ends on June 30, 2020. 

Grand prize draw is on CANADA DAY, July 1, 2020 - $20,000 will be donated to the winning charity. 

Please give as generously as you can - we really appreciate your help!



A tax receipt will be directly issued to you by CanadaHelps.

Stay home, stay well and stay safe dear friends.
