Young Benefactor

Young Benefactor

Young benefactors are contributors younger up to and including 42, that support Holland Festival with €250 a year.

Holland Festival cannot exist without the support of its Friends. You too can contribute to the renewal of the performing arts! Become a Young Benefactor and join the enthusiastic group of young culture lovers who wish to give Holland Festival a loving hand.

Whether you are a cultural newbie or an arts glutton, as one of Holland Festival's Young Benefactors, you will never plunge into the largest performing arts festival of the Netherlands alone. Together with us, you will learn about all the ins and outs of the shows and the artists.

How does it work?
As a Young Benefactor, you are very welcome at all HF Young events. 

You will also receive
·       priority at ticket sales
·       € 5 discount on every first ticket for each show and € 2,50 discount
        on every next ticket for the same show*
·       the right to the HF Young discount up to and including 42 years of age
        (as opposed to 39 years)
·       a behind-the-scenes tour at one of the performances

·       an invitation for yourself and a guest to:
        -     the festive launch of the programme in spring
        -     the Young Benefactor's dinner (at your own expense) with a
              commentary on the programme done by the festival team
        -     the festive reception after the opening performance, if you have tickets for this

Donating to a cultural institution or charity
Holland Festival has the status of a cultural ANBI*. A donation to an organisation with an ANBI status can be deducted from taxable income as a gift. The amount that you are permitted to deduct depends on the type and size of the gift. Good to know: gifts to several organisations with an ANBI status can be added together. Use this calculator to look at the fiscal benefit in your specific situation.

* Public Benefit Organisation (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling)

Young Benefactor for 5 years, with periodic gifts
If you want to be sure of receiving fiscal benefits, you can donate with a periodic agreement of minimally five years. You can select this in the registration form. Will you turn 43 in the meantime? Then you will automatically turn into a Benefactor for the same amount and you won't lose your fiscal benefit.
