The Fringe Fund


You can help our artists shine by making a donation to the Fringe Fund when you purchase a FRINGE WORLD ticket or by visiting

The Fringe Fund helps artists shine through a range of support, development and presentation opportunities including the most generous cash prize pool of any Fringe Festival in the world for award-winning productions.

Fringe Fund is an initiative of the Not-For-Profit cultural organisation and registered charity Artrage Inc. the producer of FRINGE WORLD.

Launched in 2016, the Fringe Fund is one of the many initiatives managed by Artrage and FRINGE WORLD that have the future aspirations and success of artists at their heart.

Perth Lockdown and FRINGE WORLD 2021

During the Festival, FRINGE WORLD directed patrons to donate to the Fringe Fund to support artists impacted by the February lockdown. 

Total funds raised was $91,248.81 consisting of patron donations, significant donations from the Ungar Family Foundation, Festival partner Woodside through an employee matched funding initiative, and Gage Roads Brew Co. who topped up the Fringe Fund through sales from Hello Sunshine Cider.

100% of these funds has gone directly to artists and venues who lost ticket sales.
