Fundraising Coordinator at Canadian Mental Health Association Toronto
The Twentytwenty Arts store is a digital platform where artists can sell their work and support a charitable cause at the same time. We will be officially accepting artwork submissions starting Monday, May 24th, 2021 after the launch.
The Twentytwenty Arts store lies between a for-profit and non-profit model. Every work sold supports a local artist and donates a percentage of sales to their selected charitable organization.
30% of every work sold will be donated to Twentytwenty Arts*, and the remaining 70% will be split between the artist and a charity of their choosing.
