Investing in our Future

Edinburgh International Festival Endowment Fund

The Edinburgh International Festival Endowment Fund is a significant funding source for the Festival and contributions to the Fund help secure the Festival's future for years to come. The Endowment Fund was set up in 1989 with the vision to create a stable and long-term source of funding for the Festival. The Fund, governed by an independent board of trustees, supports the Edinburgh International Festival with grants that have enabled the Festival to programme special initiatives and exceptional projects fundamental to maintaining the Festival's unique character and securing its future for generations to come.

Support given to the Festival Endowment Fund is invested in the future of the Festival.

By donating to the Endowment Fund with a cash donation, a gift of shares or a gift in your will, you can help secure the future of Edinburgh International Festival and the cultural landscape of Scotland.
