Your gift creates new and exciting opportunities

Adelaide Festival simply cannot achieve its artistically ambitious goals without significant philanthropic support. We hope you join us and take great pleasure and satisfaction as we embark on this rewarding journey together.

Every donation makes a significant impact on the scale and ambition of each Adelaide Festival. If you prefer to spread your tax-deductible donations over the course of a year, regular giving allows donors to make a monthly pledge.

All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible. There are multiple ways you can donate:

Looking for an increased level of involvement and financial support?

Adelaide Festival Benefactors
Benefactors are invited to align their contributions with specific outcomes, works and/or areas of interest (ie indigenous, education, new works, opera, visual arts, concerts, ballet). The Benefactor Program can be accessed from as little as $41 per month.

Opera Donor Circle and The Literati

Donor Circles empower individuals and increase the impact of your gift. Joining a circle means joining a group of like-minded supporters who are passionate about keeping this iconic event vibrant, inspiring and accessible to all, to build on the legacy of Adelaide Festival and Writers’ Week for this and future generations of opera and literature lovers.


Chairman's Circle
The Chairman’s Circle members directly support one prestigious international work in the Festival program and have access to exclusive networking and engagement opportunities with artists and writers during the Festival. Members of the Chairman’s Circle make an annual investment of $10,000, of which $8,000 is a tax-deductible donation.


Commissioning Circle
Each year Adelaide Festival identifies a new and worthy project which requires commissioning support due to its breadth and ground-breaking nature. In 2022 we are forming a new commissioning circle to support the creation of Watershed: The Death of Dr Duncan and the accomplished creative team Neil Armfield has brought together. 



A bequest to the Adelaide Festival is a generous way for you to make a contribution with long term impact. Bequests to the Adelaide Festival, of any amount, can help expand our programs and strengthen our financial position as we plan for future festivals.

For more information or to discuss your contribution, please contact  Bernadette Woods, Philanthropy Manager, via email at or on 08 8216 4444.
