The Indian River Festival Association raises funds and relies on financial support of its donors to support the annual programs of the organization which includes the Indian River Festival. The Festival, an annual summer-long concert series, brings world-class performances in classical, traditional, folk, jazz and world music to Historic St. Mary’s in Prince Edward Island.
Since its founding in 1996, the Association has raised over $1.5 million to enrich the lives of its patrons through performing arts, provide a performance space for established and emerging artists around the world and to aid in the continuing upkeep and restoration of Historic St. Mary’s; the home of the Indian River Festival.
No matter how big or small, each gift makes a difference and many opportunities exist at many giving levels. Find out below how you can support the organization.

Indian River Festival Endowment Property Fund
The Indian River Festival Association has established an endowment fund through The Community Foundation of Prince Edward Island. This fund provides a means of long term funding towards property maintenance for the Indian River Festival. Also, through an initiative by the Department of Canadian Heritage called the Canadian Cultural Investment Fund, money raised for the Indian River Festival Property Fund can be matched dollar for dollar by the Federal Government. With the establishment of this fund, the Festival looks forward to further growth and stability.
