The Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund has been developed to provide financial assistance to Australian artists registering their work in the Adelaide Fringe.

As an open access arts festival, many artists self-present their work in the Adelaide Fringe using their own funds. They are creative entrepreneurs, not only creating the work but then taking the financial risk of presenting that work themselves. Many receive no government funding and often just a small amount of financial assistance can mean the world of difference. 

Last year we raised over $60,000 toward the Artist Fund! Find out more about our previous recipients and what your donations mean to them.

You can donate all year round!

Become a Friend of the Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund

A new initiative of the Artist Fund  is the Friends of the Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund. If you would like to become a friend you can make a tax deductible donation of $1000 to help us continue to award grants to Artists and to also buy Fringe tickets for disadvantaged people in South Australia to go see Fringe artists perform.
