US supporters can make a tax effective donation to the International Festival and join as a Friend or Patron by making a donation to the 501(c)(3) organization, Edinburgh International Festival USA.
Edinburgh International Festival USA, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was established by a group of people who are passionately interested in the arts and, in particular, the Edinburgh International Festival in Scotland.
