Your gift creates new and exciting opportunities

Adelaide Festival simply cannot achieve its artistically ambitious goals without significant philanthropic support. We hope you join us and take great pleasure and satisfaction as we embark on this rewarding journey together.  

Every donation makes a significant impact on the scale and ambition of each Adelaide Festival. If you prefer to spread your tax-deductible donations over the course of a year, regular giving allows donors to make a monthly pledge.

All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.
