Melbourne Fringe Donor program

Melbourne Fringe

We're asking you to make a donation (a little or a lot... preferably a lot) to Melbourne Fringe. Here's why: We unearth new talent. We champion artistic expression. We celebrate bravery. We take big risks. We see things differently. We tell it like it is. We really need your money. Seriously.

Melbourne Fringe is adventurous, diverse, bold and brave. We need your donation so we can do what we do best - support the independent arts and enable freedom of artistic expression.

Friends of Fringe

You can't choose your family but you can choose your friends.

Ralph Mclean Microgrants Each year, Melbourne Fringe awards two microgrants link to Ralph Mclean page to enable artists from diverse backgrounds to present new work at the Festival.

The funds from this amazing bequest are limited, and we would love to support more grants to increase the diversity of artists in our Festival.

Legacy Program We don't want you to die, but when you do, we want you to leave your money to us. Blunt? Us? Never. Think of the extraordinary impact a gift in your will can have on the arts sector.

At proof of bequest, you will instantly become a part of our legacy program - yes, while you're still alive - so it's like a donation on lay-by, in a strange, creepy way.
