How your donation will be used
Each and every donation, no matter how large or small, is most gratefully received, helping to provide us with the funds needed to invite the world’s most talented artists to Edinburgh and ensure the International Festival remains a world-class event each year.

In 2015 your donations played a vital role in bringing over 2,300 artists from 39 nations to the stages of our beautiful city. This year donations from our Friends and Patrons will enable us to present the International Festival debut of Cecilia Bartoli, Youssou N’Dour, James Thierrée, Barry Humphries and Mogwai.  Our Benefactors continue to support our series of morning concerts at The Queen’s Hall, with many also opting to support particular evening performances at the Usher Hall, the Festival Theatre, the Edinburgh Playhouse and the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. Others are choosing to support our ever vital Creative Learning programme. 

Don't forget to gift aid it!
Gift Aid allows us to claim an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue for every pound that a UK tax payer gives us, at no extra cost to you. Simply choose yes next to the gift aid declaration when making your donation or download the Gift Aid declaration form, sign and return to us.

Other ways to make a difference
Play an integral role with the International Festival by choosing to donate at the highest level as an International Festival Benefactor or through one of the Director's funds. Your support can go directly towards our core programming costs or towards a particular area of the International Festival programme.
