Philanthropic giving is a lifeline that underpins our artistic endeavour and plays a significant role in realising the ambition and vision of the Adelaide Festival.

Through collective generosity, our audiences and supporters directly contribute to the delivery of each annual event – a spectacle widely recognised as one of the world’s leading multiarts events for its innovation and bold artistic vision, and recently lauded in The New York Times as “Australia’s biggest culture event.” However you choose to engage, your gifts will guarantee our ability to sustain a level of unswerving excellence as we ensure that Adelaide continues to present one of the world’s great arts events. Your philanthropic support of the Adelaide Festival is greatly valued and vital to our ongoing success.

Adelaide Festival Benefactors
The Benefactor Program is a fully tax deductible philanthropic giving program which aligns donor engagement with specific outcomes and/or areas of interest (ie indigenous, education, new works, opera, visual arts, concerts, ballet) to create loyal donors and longer term giving. There are no benefits associated with the Benefactor program. Click here to become a Benefactor

General Donations, Regular Giving, Planned Giving
Every donation, no matter how big or small, makes a significant impact on the scale and ambition of each Adelaide Festival. Your passion and commitment will be acknowledged in our annual publications. All donations over $2 are 100% tax deductable.

Regular giving allows donors to make a monthly pledge and spread their tax-deductible donations over the course of a year. The Benefactor Program can be accessed from as little as $41 per month.

A bequest to the Adelaide Festival is a generous way for you to make a contribution with long term impact. Bequests to the Adelaide Festival, of any amount, can help expand our programs and strengthen our financial position as we plan for future festivals.

For more information please email Sarah Killey or call on 08 8216 4478 to discuss your contribution.

We look forward to a close and rewarding association with you.
