Friends, Angels and Patrons
Our Fringe Friends, Patrons and Angels are vital to the ongoing success of the Fringe. Their generous support and donations help us to work with 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 the future. Join up as a Fringe Friend today by selecting your preferred donation level.
Donations from the USA
Donations made to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society through NPT-UK are eligible for tax relief in the US. The minimum contribution is $3,200 (approximately £2,000), which is subject to a small administrative fee. NPT manages all administration including compliance, accounting and forwarding your donation to the Fringe Society.
Donors can also become Fringe Angels to receive a wide range of benefits.

Leaving a gift in your Will
Any gift, however large or small, will ensure that the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society continues to light up the streets of Edinburgh for years to come.
Leaving a gift in your Will can be a surprisingly straight forward process, but we do recommend that you consult a solicitor who will be able to discuss your plans in relation to your personal circumstances.
If you are considering what to do to commemorate an important occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or memorial, a gift to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society could be the perfect choice. You can make a gift or collect donations for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society in the name of a family member, friend or colleague.
Perhaps you are looking for a unique and special surprise for a loved one who has a passion for the arts in Scotland. Or maybe you would like to support our organisation in memory of someone equally inspiring.
If you would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one, you donate via our Virgin Money Giving page or post a cheque to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society.

Don’t forget to Gift Aid! 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 05 April 2006 at no extra cost to you. Meaning for every £10.00 you donate, we actually receive £12.50. This makes a huge difference to us.
Please note, you must pay an amount of UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the tax that we reclaim on your donations in any single tax year. To sign the Gift Aid declaration, please fill in and submit the Gift Aid declaration form.
Offer your time
At the moment, we are not able to offer work experience and internships within the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society. As we are essentially a service organisation, we exist to service companies and the public, and it's our obligation to fulfil that seriously. Therefore, we believe that all our staff should be paid appropriately to deliver those services on behalf of Fringe participants and the public.
