Private Giving


You can give Melbourne Festival a helping hand.

Ticket sales alone cannot cover all the costs associated with delivering the Festival, especially its free outdoor program. We rely on contributions from individuals to sustain the Festival and to ensure our future. Whether $2 or $2,000, when you support Melbourne’s international arts festival by making a tax-deductible donation, you strengthen this city’s culture and international reputation and reinforce that the festival is truly an event of the people of Melbourne.

Your support will extend to both our indoor programming and to our free, highly accessible outdoor events. It will allow us to continue to delight and stimulate Melbourne audiences with world class performances.  Most importantly, you will also be helping to grow our education program for Victorian students, and our outreach activities that extend beyond the stage into the local community.

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.
