Philanthropy is a gift. Join our Benefactor Program and enjoy the gift of giving.

As one of the world’s leading arts festivals, not many know that Adelaide Festival is also a registered charity. As such, your very generous support helps the Festival deliver an outstanding, world-class program each year.
Finding the funds required to achieve all our ambitions, whilst keeping the festival accessible to everyone is a real challenge. The vital support from individuals, trusts, foundations and corporate organisations goes a long way to bridge the gap. We depend on you, our committed audience members, to help us continue presenting inspiring work of the highest artistic rigour. Your support helps us commission new work from leading writers and composers and allows us to bring the world’s most exciting companies, performers, directors and creatives to Adelaide.

Benefactors are invited to align their contributions with specific areas of interest or chosen works.
