Support us

Every penny you give makes a difference

Our supporters’ generosity plays a vital role in helping us keep the Edinburgh Festival Fringe open and accessible for everyone who wants to attend or participate.

The Fringe Society was founded by artists to nurture and uphold the Fringe's values of inclusivity, experimentation and imagination – it exists to:

  • provide support, advice and encouragement to all the amazing artists, producers and venues who create the Fringe each year
  • assist audiences by helping to navigate what’s on offer with comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date information and ticketing
  • promote this wonderful and unique festival to the rest of the world.

We work year-round to support the Fringe, and couldn’t do it without the enthusiasm of the people of Edinburgh, combined with the longstanding support of our audiences, sponsors and supporters and the goodwill of our Fringe Friends, Patrons and Angels. Join them today and help support the single greatest celebration of arts and culture on the planet.

You can support the Fringe Society in several ways:

  • Add a donation to your basket when purchasing tickets or make a one-off donation online.
  • Become a Fringe Friend. Every penny you donate as part of your Friends membership will help the Fringe Society support artists affected by the current situation, as well as ensuring everyone, regardless of their background or circumstances, has the chance to enjoy the Fringe in future.
  • If you represent a company, we offer a range of corporate sponsorship opportunities.
  • Become a Fringe Angel and receive all the benefits of being a Friend alongside exclusive access to the inner workings of the Society.
  • As a charity, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society can claim Gift Aid on behalf of customers and donors who are UK tax payers. If you agree to Gift Aid your donations, we can reclaim the tax on any qualifying donations made since 5 April 2006 at no extra cost to you.
