Patrons Circle

Your opportunity to make a real impact in the arts.

Melbourne Festival debuts and premieres the finest local, national and international events, ensuring that Melbourne is the only place in Australia that many of them are seen. However, most of these events would not have the opportunity to be seen in Melbourne if it were not for the support of Patrons Circle donors.

We invite you to help Melbourne Festival achieve its goals by donating now. All donations of $1,000 and above are recognised under Melbourne Festival’s Patrons program—a vibrant and ever changing festival core of arts lovers that reflects the very best of the wonderfully diverse Melbourne community. Melbourne Festival is proud to acknowledge the generous support we receive from our Patrons Circle donors.

Please donate to the Patrons Circle and help keep Melbourne Festival alive and vibrant today, tomorrow and for generations to come. You can donate to the Patrons Circle online, or by filling out a Patrons Circle donation form and sending it back to us.

Funded thanks to Patrons Circle donations
