Edinburgh is the home of enlightenment and was designated as the world’s first UNESCO City of Literature.

With your support the Edinburgh International Book Festival can continue to be a uniquely vibrant and inspiring gathering of readers and writers. Please help us maintain Edinburgh’s reputation as the world's leading literary festival by making a donation to support our work.

  • £10 could help fund a sign language interpreter to make the Festival accessible to all
  • £20 could help fund our free drop-in activities for children and young people
  • £100 could help bring international authors from all around the world to debate and discuss in the heart of Charlotte Square Gardens

You can also support us by becoming a Patron - find out more on our Patrons page.

Donations, large or small, can help us bring the world in words to Edinburgh and if you are a tax payer, by ticking the Gift Aid box we, as a charity, can claim an additional 25p for every pound you donate – at no extra cost to you.

Thank you
