Please remember Edinburgh International Festival in your Will
Once you have remembered the people you care about please don't forget the cause you believe in.
The Edinburgh International Festival is a unique cultural event, and ensuring its future is vital to the cultural, educational and economic well-being of the people of Edinburgh and Scotland. Legacies play a vital role in helping to safe-guard the Festival's future.
The Festival's founding vision to create a world class cultural event that would enliven, and enrich the cultural life of Europe, Britain and Scotland and ‘provide a platform for the flowering of the human spirit' is as relevant today as in it's first year in 1947.
Help secure the future well-being of the Festival
Continuing to develop and build on our past achievements is key to our future success, and there is no doubt that healthy finances are fundamental to our ambitions. Every gift, no matter how large or small, will make a difference to the future of the Festival. Please act now and pledge your support for the Festival by leaving a gift in your Will.
Where will the money go?
Every August, the Edinburgh International Festival transforms one of the world's most beautiful cities, presenting three exhilarating weeks of the finest creators and performers form the world of the arts - for everyone.
