GIAF is committed to keep bringing the power of the arts to our communities.

As a not-for-profit, Galway International Arts Festival relies on the generosity of those who have felt our impact to help support our activities into the future. And we believe the future is bright.

Whether large or small, GIAF can mobilise your gift to cover so many of the things that make the Festival extraordinary: from street performances to temporary galleries and from theatre world premieres to our talks programme.

While a portion of the Festival's income comes from public sector grants, the rest must be obtained through ticket sales and other earned income as well as the generous backing of sponsors, Friends and donors. In other words, supporters like you are the reason GIAF can continue to carry out its work.

If you believe in the power of arts and culture to impact lives, advance societies and foster the well-being of future generations, GIAF can help you realise it. There are many giving options to choose from. See our Production Fund, Major Gifts, Donations and Friends pages for more information.
