HAI Ontario Arts Endowment Fund Campaign


Investing in our future!

Beginning in May 2013 membership fees were increased by $5.00. This was so Hamilton Artists Inc. could continue to invest annually in our Ontario Arts Foundation Endowment Campaign. The $ 5 membership rate increase is directly allocated into this investment fund benefiting our organization and our future, for our members and for our community.  Every $5 makes a difference! We thank you for believing in our future!
