Building Financial Resilience

At the top of the session, we were joined by Nik Nanos, Chief Data Scientist and Founder of Nanos Research, who shared the latest findings from the Arts Response Tracking Survey (ARTS). This edition of ARTS provides valuable insights into culture-goers’ sentiments toward the return to in-person activities and comfort levels with increased capacities, as well as levels of concern about the survival of organizations and donation intentions.

This session also featured a response panel with business and arts leaders from across the country. Together we discussed how giving trends have evolved during the pandemic, strategies for mobilizing donors and opportunities to re-engage with key stakeholders.

Speakers Included: 

  • Anne Maggisano, CFA, Vice President, Burgundy Asset Management and Chair, Toronto Public Library Foundation, Board member of the Canadian Opera Company and Crow’s Theatre
  • Melissa Tsang, Managing Director, Urban Ink
  • Nadine Haddad, Director of Philanthropy, Confederation Centre of the Arts
