Benefactors contribute hugely to the Festival's ongoing development aims.
As a Benefactor you will receive the following benefits annually, helping make your visit to Hay Festival extra special:
The membership is for five years and two people. The cost of becoming a Benefactor is £10,000 for five years (or £2,500 per annum).
To support the Foundation, you may wish to Gift Aid any donation made today or in the future, and any donation you may have made in the past four years to the Hay Festival Foundation. A minimum payment of £1,000 per annum secures all benefits (whether you pay annually or as a one-off payment) and you may purchase these benefits separately without making any further donation. The balance of £1,500 is a suggested donation to the Hay Festival Foundation and gift aid can be claimed on this amount to support to the Foundation’s programmes.
