Support Us

At the heart of the Edinburgh Art Festival has always been a commitment to reaching the widest possible audience, with a majority of our programme being free to attend. As a registered charity, we rely on generous support from funders, corporate sponsors, individual donors and trusts to allow us to programme ambitiously and introduce new audiences to visual art.

If you enjoy the festival and would like to see us grow – you can support Edinburgh Art Festival by making a donation or buying an item in our online shop. Every donation, no matter how large or small, supports us to stay ambitious, inclusive and free at the point of access.

By joining the Commissioning Circle, you can directly help us to continue commissioning bold new work, support future generations of artists, and champion free access to the very best in visual art.

For businesses, we offer the opportunity to reach wide audiences and to align your brand to the UK’s largest annual festival of visual art. Attracting over a wide range of audiences across 5 weeks in August, we can offer significant brand exposure for our funders and supporters. As well as marketing and networking opportunities, supporters have the chance to contribute to the success of a world-class festival.

You can also support Edinburgh Art Festival for free by signing up to easyfundraising. Click on ‘support this cause’ and over 4500 online retailers will make a small donation to us every time you purchase – around 1 – 3% of each transaction.
