Selling naming rights can provide a one-time injection of funds. For example:

• Art Gallery of Hamilton CIBC Wood Gundy World Film Festival
• TD Festival of Friends (née Westjet Festival of Friends)
• RBC Aquafest


There is also federal funding available for arts-based festivals.


The City's 2013 Advance Payments to External Boards and Agencies (FCS12101) gives you an idea of what various bodies are getting what kind of funding. Three in the Supercrawl range (2012 funding):

• Festival of Friends (est 1976): $85,270
• Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra (est 1949): $113,700
• Opera Hamilton (est 1980): $126,930

History suggests that the City funds risk-averse operations.
