Join our fantastic Fringe Family of artists, creatives, ground breakers, boundary pushers, instigators and advocators. Help us support the next generation of Sydney’s culture creators and together build a vibrant, diverse and exciting night-life.

Your support helps us activate more space and continue to champion emerging artists and producers.

The funds raised through this current campaign will enable us to employ a full-time Development Manager to reach our goal of fundraising $2million dollars over the next three years to ensure more artists, more audiences and more venues can take part in Sydney Fringe for many more years.

Founding Donor: Director’s Circle
(limited number only five places remaining)

Our Founding Donors have brought their friends and family into the fold, raising additional funds to support the next generation of independent artists and the vital year-round work Sydney Fringe undertakes to activate space for the performing arts and creative industries of Sydney. As part of the Director’s Circle our Founding Donors influence and contribute to the greater vision of Sydney Fringe, are passionate about investing in the cultural life of Sydney and determined to ensure that Sydney remains a great global city recognised for its cultural offering.


Seed Funders

Your contribution enables us to activate more space more often to nurture the next generation of culture creators. Building a more sustainable future for independent artists and directly contributing to the cultural vibrancy of our city. In 2018 Sydney Fringe activated over 30 temporary performances spaces as part of our festival. Help us appropriate and activate vital unused and underutilised space for local artists and audiences.


Own it for a Moment

Your investment helps us to create new and vibrant events, activations and performances. You might not be able to hang it on your wall but your support directly contributes to the creation of new works by new artists and you will own it for a moment come festival time in September.

International programming fund

Sydney Fringe Festival has established the 2018 international programming fund to allow our audience to grow the future direction of the festival with us. Our 2018 international program will aim to inspire local artists, arouse local audiences and put an even bigger international spotlight on our beloved annual event. 

"We are very much a part of the World Fringe movement in Sydney and this year I was invited to the 70th Edinburgh Fringe Festival as one of 200 international delegates to attend the British Council Showcase.  As part of this trip we now have strengthened ties with local and international festivals and are on the brink of bringing the world's best artists to Sydney and sending our own artists overseas.   We have a chance to handpick the best shows from these events and bring them here for Sydney audiences to enjoy. All we need now is a group of patrons who want to see this as much as we do."

Kerri Glasscock, Sydney Fringe Festival Director
