The cost of becoming a Patron is £1,000 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 £500 secures all benefits, and you may purchase these benefits separately without making any further donation. The balance of £500 is a suggested donation to the Hay Festival Foundation and gift aid can be claimed on this amount to support the Foundation’s programmes.
