Major Gifts

Major gifts are monetary or in-kind contributions that can make a significant impact on the Festival’s ability to reach, engage and inspire people around the globe.

By making a major gift to GIAF, you are helping to ensure that the Festival can continue to present and produce ground-breaking, life-changing work and increase access to the arts for all.

Major gifts include once-off contributions, repeated giving as a result of a customised giving strategy with the Festival and planned giving as part of an individual’s estate or financial arrangement.

Our team can work with you to determine the area of the Festival in which your gift can make the biggest impact. If you already have an area in mind, we are happy to work with you to make it happen.

We endeavour to recognise our major donors in ways that suit each individual so that we can best express our thanks for your generosity.

If you are interested in making a major gift, please contact Hilary Martyn at
