Donors

The Tofino Poet Laureate program is made possible through the volunteer and financial support of multiple community agencies and individuals.   The District of Tofino has committed up to half of the $5000 annual fee for the Poet Laureate.  The other half is fund raised by the Tofino Poet Laureate Working Group within the community.

Businesses, individuals and organizations have the opportunity to participate and contribute toward the program and help fund the annual artist’s fee, events and activities of the Poet Laureate, and promotional costs.

The program exists thanks to the incredible support of these donors:
