You can donate securely using the form at the bottom of this page, or by visiting our charity profile on CanadaHelps.org. We accept one-time and monthly donations, and all donations are eligible for a charitable tax receipt. You will be prompted to select a fund to donate to:
a. General – supports programs, artist fees, and the management of our archive
b. Sustaining – supports core operations and administration, including gallery maintenance once we secure a space again
c. ReIssue – supports ReIssue.pub, our interdisciplinary art writing partnership with VIVO Media Arts Centre
Every dollar donated to UNIT/PITT strengthens our mission to support artists by enabling us to provide opportunities for exhibition, performance, publication, mentorship, and residencies. Since the arrival of COVID-19, we have pivoted our in-person programming to mail art and virtual platforms with an emphasis on supporting student and early-career artists and writers. Through I Spy…a Disposable Camera Project, La Commune 2021 Free School and Artist Residency, Helen’s Quarantine Cookbook, and ReIssue.pub, we have distributed artist fees to 60+ individuals since Spring 2020. We will continue prioritizing artist fees, but we also dream of reopening a small gallery in Vancouver in 2022. Your donation gets us closer to making that dream a reality.
On behalf of UNIT/PITT’s Board of Directors, staff and membership, thank you.
