Edinburgh International Festival
Edinburgh International Festival Develops Donor Relationships Using The Raiser’s Edge®
Founded in 1947, the Edinburgh International Festival connects artists and audiences during a three week period every August. During this time Edinburgh’s major theatres and concert halls, as well as smaller and less conventional venues too, come alive with the best classical music, theatre, opera, dance and visual art from around the globe.
Edinburgh International Festival is responsible for funding all of its own activities, and as a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity, its budget is a carefully balanced mix of income raised from ticket sales, fundraising and sponsorship along with various public sector grants.
