You might know ArtBound from its yearly fundraiser, The pARTy ,celebrating art and creativity, frequently voted as one of the top 10 events of the year, and attended by thousands of young professionals, artists, media and VIPs in Toronto.
After four successful events, ArtBound took a hiatus and really thought about how we could broaden our impact year round and in more places across the country and the world. This is where Creative Deeds was born.
Creative Deeds is a crowd funding platform to raise funds for art-focused projects in Canada and all over the world. Creative Deeds are campaigns anyone can start to raise money for a selected charity program (currently 4 of them). Campaigners choose what they want to do, start a campaign and we help you raise awareness. 100% of the money raised through Creative Deed campaigns is directly transferred to the selected charity.
Our charity partners are strongly vetted as being strong impactful leaders in the field, and Creative Deeds will go a long way to achieve their fundraising goals.
