    Michael – is there any kind of web-donation mechanism yet?

  3. Michael Wheeler says:

    Good question Ross. I don’t know. At yesterday’s memorial Shaw Festival AD Jackie Maxwell announced they would be administrating the award along with the Ontario Arts Foundation. I was just on their website and they don’t appear to have an online donation system set up. Looks like the old cheque and envelope routine is the safest bet.

    Sincere thanks to all who were involved in putting together a thoughtful and moving response to a tragic loss for many yesterday.
