Can you find it in your wallet heart to help us?

For more than 40 years now Fringe has been giving artists a leg up – and our donors have supported us each step of the way. We spend every dollar you give us uplifting and growing the independent arts. We run creative workshops, info sessions, and offer one-on-one assistance all year long, with cultural equity at the forefront of everything we do.

With the support of our donors, Fringe Fund is our game-changing new approach to ensure our vision of cultural democracy has the financial resources to be realised. Fringe Fund provides commission opportunities, concessions on fees, and even cold hard cash to ease financial pressure on artists so they can create amazing new art.

You can choose how you want to support the independent arts when you donate to the Fringe Fund. There are three streams you can donate to:

  • Cash to Create does exactly what it says on the box, financially supporting artists with cashed-up commissions to conceive, develop and create their next big (or little) Fringe project.
  • Cash for Equity knocks down barriers that prevent artists from participating in Fringe (think subsidised registration fees, venue hire and material costs) so that anyone facing disadvantage can play the game of Fringe.
  • Cash for Core enables us to keep working for artists by strengthening our team, keeping the lights on and securing our future.

Take your pick, or let us pick for you. Either way – thanks for being one of our lifelines.

Dead Fringers’ Society

Legacy donations let you leave behind a meaningful and enduring gift to the independent arts community – and support our best emerging artistic talent long into the future.

Let’s be clear here: no-one wants you shuffling off this mortal coil a second before your time, but when it does finally happen? Consider how your bequest to Melbourne Fringe can help secure the long-term future of Australia’s most adventurous, inclusive and all-encompassing multi-artform festival (that’s us!).

For more than 40 years, Fringe has served up a smorgasbord of bold, brave and remarkable creative works. We provide independent artists with the space to take risks and try something new. We kickstart careers and unearth exciting new talent with vital voices. We challenge perceptions and shake up the hierarchy, we’re rebellious spirits, we’re disrupters and thinkers, makers, creators and truth-tellers. That’s our legacy – and if it sounds like it could be your legacy too, contact Miranda Borman, Head of Development, at miranda@melbournefringe.com.au or 03 9660 9600.
