Adelaide Festival Centre Foundation’s mission is to enrich the lives of generations to come and to give young South Australians an experience that lasts a lifetime.

The Foundation donors care about the creative future of South Australia and they recognise that the arts are an essential part of our lives and that they do more than provide entertainment; they celebrate our identity, heritage and diversity.

The Foundation is committed to inspiring and stimulating young people at Adelaide Festival Centre and raises money to support a range of activities and initiatives:

  • Welcoming children and their families to discover the wonder and magic of the arts
  • Changing young people’s lives through the arts by subsidising ticket prices to make them affordable for financially disadvantaged children and young people
  • Career development through fellowships and training opportunities
