Support the International Festival’s future

The Edinburgh International Festival is a place where cultures collide. Each year, we present the world’s best performing artists – musicians, dancers, singers, actors, directors and more – to over 120,000 audience members.

We provide a platform for artists to innovate, collaborate and work with Edinburgh’s schools and community groups – to provide the deepest possible experience to the widest possible audience. Our year-round Learning and Engagement work brings free music, opera and theatre to local schools and helps train the artists of tomorrow.

We can’t do this without your help. The Edinburgh International Festival is a charity that relies on the support of wonderful people like you. Ticket sales only cover 30% of what it costs to run the Festival each year - we need your donations to bridge the gap.

Like many non-profits, The Edinburgh International Festival has partnered with the Chapel & York US Foundation allowing our American donors to make gifts to a registered 501(c)(3) whilst continuing their support of the Festival. If you would like to donate via this method, then please visit our dedicated Chapel & York Foundation webpage.
