We are a small but mighty volunteer-run, community funded, charitable organization that believes in the power of the arts to uplift and transform communities. We award grants and bursaries to support the arts, in order to advance collaboration, equity and diversity, to contribute to the quality of life in our community.

“Thanks to the Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts for awarding me a $500 bursary so I can attend one of the best film schools in all of Canada! The financial contribution made has helped me get closer to reaching my goal as a children’s media director.”
“The Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts Grant allowed me to work with a larger group of students at Bayview Community School. I was able to connect with pre-primary to grade 6 students to create an incredible ceramic mural in their library. I very much appreciate the support!”
“The LFA grant helped my organization Hear Here Productions. I was able to compose, record and edit the music, complete editing, and add titles to complete two short films. Providing grants to local artists can make a huge impact in allowing them to create the work they are passionate about in their own communities.
“The LFA grant was able to assist with my professional development at the Banff Centre, where I partook in a 3-week residency for new compositions in improvisational jazz music. The freedom that this experience offered me in eliminating day-to-day distractions and the stress of finances was indescribable; it was truly the most creative and insightful time I’ve ever had! Thank you for facilitating this pivotal time in my musical career.”
We are a registered charity working hard to ensure a vibrant future for the arts in Lunenburg County. 100% of the funds we raise go directly towards supporting projects by emerging and established artists in the form of grants and bursaries.
