Individual giving

The generosity of individual supporters makes a huge difference to the success of MIF. Your donations help the best international artists to create unique new works exclusively for the Festival, and also go a long way towards supporting our extensive creative learning programmes that reach so many people around Greater Manchester. Your support will help us to continue creating unique and unforgettable experiences for years to come.

MIF is a registered charity. If you’re a UK taxpayer, your donation to MIF will be eligible for Gift Aid, which allows us to reclaim the basic rate of income tax on every pound you donate. In effect, Gift Aid increases the value of your donation by as much as 25% – for example, a donation of £100 will be worth £125 to us once we have reclaimed the tax on your behalf.

If you’d like to find out more about becoming a donor, please contact Jenny Mungall, MIF’s Development Director, +44 (0)161 817 4516 or
