-To support performing arts in the community;

-To provide instructional seminars on topics related to the performing and visual arts;
-To produce performing arts festivals for the purposes of educating and advancing the public's understanding and appreciation of performing arts, and to educate artists through participation in such festivals and related workshops.


The Wright Family Performing Arts and Entertainment Centre Foundation reviews all grants based on their merit:
-Only registered charities are eligible for grants.
-Organizations must demonstrate a strong and committed board, fiscal responsibility, and effective management.
-Projects must primarily benefit the residents of the Municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc and its neighboring communities. For projects located outside the Municipality, applicants should demonstrate how the project will also benefit the people of Strathroy-Caradoc.
