About MuchFACT

MuchFact is exclusively funded by Much & MuchMore, divisions of Bell Media Inc. Since 1984, the Foundation has awarded more than $100 million dollars, and funded nearly 9000 projects. Replenishment of the fund is tied to a regulatory commitment wherein the company pledges a percentage of gross annual revenues to the fund.

Established in 1984, the fund was originally called VideoFACT. With the launch of MuchMoreMusic in 1998, a new fund in conjunction with VideoFACT was created called PromoFACT, to help assist in the creation of Electronic Press Kits (EPK) and website productions for Canadian artists, independent record labels and artist management companies. PromoFACT is funded exclusively by MuchMoreMusic.

Many of Canada's most influential recording artists received VideoFACT funding for their early recordings, including Sam Roberts, K-os, Céline Dion, k.d. lang, Matthew Good, The Pursuit of Happiness, Bran Van 3000, Lara Fabian, Blue Rodeo, Rascalz, Sloan, Jean Leloup, Great Big Sea, Sarah McLachlan, Death From Above 1979, Dubmatique, Aspektz and Ashley MacIsaac.

In 2009, VideoFACT was renamed MuchFACT.
