Our Benefactors contribute to the Festival's ongoing development aims. With our Benefactors' generosity and support we are able to extend the reach and accessibility of the Festival further than ever before.

As a Benefactor you will receive the following benefits:
At the live Hay Festival, Wales you will receive the following benefits, helping make your visit to Hay Festival extra special:
Please note that some benefits at our live events may be altered to comply with Covid-19 safety protocols.
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).
If you would like to talk about any of our memberships please contact Jo by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
