Become a Benefactor and play your part in Adelaide Festival

Becoming a Benefactor is the natural progression from being an appreciative and receptive audience member to becoming a Friend of the Festival, then realising that in my small personal way I can contribute to the creation of pieces that will move and amaze me and give me something to think about for many years. Becoming a Benefactor is indeed the gift that keeps on giving.

Helen Barlas

Adelaide Festival simply cannot achieve its artistically ambitious goals without significant philanthropic support. We invite you to join us as a Benefactor so we can embark on this exciting and rewarding journey together.

Your gift creates new and exciting opportunities in a broad range of art forms: theatre, opera, classical music (orchestral, choral, chamber, recitals), contemporary dance (including new ballet work), contemporary music, literature, visual arts, interdisciplinary performances, and outdoor spectacles.

Growing up, I never had the opportunity to attend the arts. I came to it later in life and I hope that my support can allow greater access to the wider community, particularly those who experienced hardship like I did growing up.

Dr Scott C Y Ma
