Corporate Partnerships

Partner with SKETCH to support young people living homeless and on the margins to develop capacity to join the creative industries

SKETCH provides engaging opportunities for corporations and business owners to invest and participate in SKETCH programs to support young artists.


The SKETCH BFF Program is our answer to cause marketing and helping local businesses achieve their own corporate social responsibility goals.  Our BFFs are corporate partners who have promised a set dollar amount or percentage to be donated to SKETCH for an extended time period. It’s through these partnerships that help bridge the communication interaction between private and not for profit spaces. We hope that through our BFF Program we’re able to educate, learn and grow alongside our BFFs.

SKETCHTalks brings together leaders from Toronto’s technology, advertising, creative and not-for-profit sectors to create strategies and dialogue around change-making in the community. These curated breakfast meet-ups are a great place to connect with big ideas and learn more about SKETCH.


Team building that gives back

SKETCH has successfully launched an employee engagement, team building workshop Nourish, which provides opportunities for groups of 6-15 people to spend an afternoon in the SKETCH kitchen preparing healthy meals that directly support young people in SKETCH programs.

This team building experience is accessible to culinary experts and novices alike. Led by SKETCH Culinary Artists, your team will prepare and create food for two full meals for up to 80 SKETCH participants. At the end of the workshop you will have an opportunity to sit down together and enjoy some of the food you’ve prepared. SKETCH Nourish provides a thoughtful way for teams to have fun while making social impact.

To learn more about ways your company can connect or to take a tour, contact Dale Roy at or 416-516-1559 ext 3401

Dear Friends and Investors,

Greetings from the SKETCH Project Home Team! We hope that you and your family are keeping well and safe during this time.

UPDATE: SKETCH is placing the capital campaign to purchase our studios on brief hiatus until the fall.

Our campaign has been a great success so far, with over $370,000 raised in funds and Community Bonds! However, in face of the COVID-19 pandemic, SKETCH is taking action to suspend the campaign to allow the time needed for those excited about our campaign to be in a more secure position to participate.

If you have already donated to the campaign, or purchased SKETCH Community Bonds, we deeply appreciate your commitment to Project Home. If you've just recently submitted your bond-purchase documents, we will still process your investment.

Have any questions about your donations or bond purchase? Please do not hesitate to contact SKETCH Executive Director, Rudy Ruttimann at

This summer, we'll be working with our campaign partners and SKETCH community to determine exactly when we relaunch in the Fall. We'll be sure to keep you posted over the summer.

You can still inquire about SKETCH, our capital campaign, and its progress at or by following us at @SKETCHToronto.

Thank you for your time, and we wish all the best for you and your family.

-The SKETCH Team & Campaign Advisory
