Donating from the US?
We have recently partnered with the Chapel & York US Foundation, Inc to ensure that our American supporters can claim tax benefits by giving to a registered 501(c)(3). The Chapel & York US Foundation, Inc will provide you with a tax receipt for your donation. The Chapel & York Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) with EIN 81-2161937. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
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 donation to 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 honour of a loved one, please contact our team at [email protected] or on 0131 226 0036.
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.
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.
Trusts and foundations
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe welcomes the opportunity to build new partnerships with trusts, foundations and public funders from all over the world.
Together, we can improve support for artists, access and community engagement to give anyone a stage and everyone a seat. We deliver a wide range of activities that focus on mental health, developing emerging artists, measuring impact and helping young people and marginalised groups engage with performing arts.
For details on how your trust or foundation can make a difference, please contact our Development team on [email protected] or call +44 (0)131 226 0036.
