TIFF Bell Lightbox



The vision of TIFF Bell Lightbox as a dynamic cultural anchor for the city of Toronto has inspired generous giving. To date, we have raised $162 million dollars of our total fundraising goal of $192 million dollars (82%) for capital (for the building), endowment, and ongoing operating funds.

We thank the many generous supporters who are helping us to realize our goals.

We still need the investment of individuals to help us realize our dream to create the world’s first building dedicated to the understanding and appreciation of the moving image and its past, present and future.

We hope you will consider making a contribution to TIFF Bell Lightbox today.
