Foundation Adelaide Festival will, through philanthropic fundraising, stewardship of funds and provision of financial support, assist the Adelaide Festival (including Adelaide Writers’ Week) in achieving:
- the Festival’s Mission to create and present programs that inspire, challenge and delight local, national and international audiences; stimulate local creativity and community involvement and attract artists from across the country and around the world; and
- the Festival’s Vision to be recognised nationally and internationally as one of the world’s greatest multi-arts festivals that brings to the audience the power of great art; pursues new creative horizons; places Adelaide at the centre of Australia’s culture; and creates a transformative impact on our city, making arts central to the culture of our society.
Foundation Adelaide Festival will support the Adelaide Festival in achieving its vision through assisting its financial stability and facilitating its long-term development and exceptional one-off projects. The Foundation will be a bridge between the Festival and its community of interest, providing a pathway for support, nurturing existing donors and stimulating new donors in order to grow philanthropic support to become the most significant income stream for the Festival other than Government and box office. The Foundation’s support for the Festival will eliminate short to mid-term financial instability, enable ambitious long-term artistic planning and build a substantial endowment over time which will generate strong annual returns for the Festival.
