According to our Statutes, providing financial assistance for the Bayreuth Festival is the purpose of the Society of Friends of Bayreuth. We are also in the unusual position of being integrated, as the society of patrons, in the financial planning of the cultural facility that we support. It is one of the duties of our Board of Management to discuss and adopt the budget of the Bayreuth Festival together with the public bodies which contribute subsidies.
In addition to this share in the contribution towards the running costs, the Society of Friends of Bayreuth has also financed all the investments in technology and buildings for the Festival since 1990. In the past 20 years, more than 28 million euros have been transferred to the Festival management for investments of this kind.
The membership subscription currently amounts to 205 euros per year. For some years now, the Society’s annual revenue has totalled more than three million euros a year. We would be delighted to welcome you or your company as members and sponsors of the Bayreuth Festival. The membership subscriptions and all donations can be set off in full against German tax, and we are happy to issue you with the appropriate donation certificate.
