Fundraising Events

Our annual events raise funds that enable the AGO to present the very best in art through a diverse and captivating collection and exhibitions program.


Fundraising Events evergreen


ART TORONTO is Canada’s leading international contemporary and modern art fair and one of the most important annual art events in the country. The Opening Night Preview is the not-to-be-missed opening party benefit for the AGO. Last year, we raised $505,000 in support of AGO exhibitions, programming and artwork acquisitions.

The Opening Night Preview offers guests exclusive access to view and purchase works at the fair before it opens to the general public. Alongside leading dealers and artists, guests will toast the opening of the fair with signature cocktails, gourmet hors d'oeuvres and an artist project uniquely created for the evening.

AGO Massive is an annual fundraiser that combines great food, dancing and innovative exhibitions for an unforgettable art party with philanthropy at its core. Enjoy signature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, show your moves on the dance floor, or immerse yourself in the contemporary art installations on view at the AGO for one night only.

Proceeds from AGO Massive support our public programming and learning activities, the care and conservation of our collection, and provide opportunities for local and regional artists to animate the Gallery through exhibitions, installations and interventions.
