Canadian National Exhibition Foundation
With the support of the CNE community, the CNE Foundation is able to help make a difference in the lives of individuals and the community on a year-round basis through our charitable programs.
CNE Archives Project
The Canadian National Exhibition Foundation is on a mission to save priceless CNE memories. It’s a race against time to digitize and preserve more than 64,000 photo negatives in the CNE archival collection before the precious images are lost forever. You can help save the CNE’s history for future generations.
Smiles on Faces Program
The CNE Foundation’s Smiles on Faces Program treats some of the GTA’s most vulnerable kids to an unforgettable day of fun, memories and smiles! You can help a child take a break from their real-life challenges for a day and help put a smile on their face.
Community and Youth Programs
Community support of the CNE Foundation’s fundraisers throughout the year enables us to sponsor a number of Community and Youth Programs that make a lasting impact on the lives of young people.
The CNE Foundation is committed to supporting organizations that share our community vision and whose mandates fall within one of our core funding pillars — Agriculture and the Environment, Arts and Culture, Industry and Entrepreneurship, and Community Building.
Eamonn O'Loghlin Scholarship Fund
The Eamonn O’Loghlin Scholarship Fund bestows grants to assist outstanding post-secondary students as they pursue their studies. Students employed by the CNE or Exhibition Place, who work at the annual fair, are eligible to apply.
With the ongoing support of the CNE community, we are making a positive impact on the lives of individuals and the community. Thank you.
