Donate to the Donor Circle

Join our Donor Circle

Don't worry, we don't want your organs. But if your heart belongs to Fringe, we have the group for you.

By joining our Donor Circle with a yearly donation of $1,000+, you can help to ensure Adelaide Fringe remains accessible, supportive and inspiring for all artists and audiences. Our like minded, passionate community are committed to ensuring Adelaide Fringe keeps the arts unlimited! 

Fringe Visionaries ($10,000+), Champions ($5,000+), Innovators ($2,000+) and Friends ($1,000+)

In 2024, our generous Donor Circle supported more than 264 artists and venues to participate in Adelaide Fringe through grants dispersed through our Fringe Fund. These grants enabled artists to bring their work to Adelaide Fringe from a vast range of diverse cultures and communities, to tour to regional and remote communities and implement access provisions such as Auslan interpretation and audio description.

Whilst 264 artists and venues were supported, there were 273 applicants that missed out on our 2024 grants due to limited funds. Join our Donor Circle today to support the 273 applicants who missed out to participate in the 2025 Adelaide Fringe.

"With the help of the Fringe Fund, we were able to support the show in marketing, venue hire and registration, and this made the world of difference. We were also able to pay some of the fees and per diems for our artists and crew, and this helped immensely. Thank you Adelaide Fringe." - Karen Roberts, Sex & Other Philosophies, Artist Fund Recipient
The Donor Circle also supported the purchase of $129,273 worth of tickets for more than 6,000 people who otherwise would not be able to experience Fringe. You can help us send 10,000 people to Fringe in 2025 by joining our Donor Circle today.

With the help of our Donor Circle, every artist and venue will have the opportunity to elevate the diverse voices of our community, and support all forms of expression that enrich our festival offering.
