‘If we can help MIF get one more big artist here, or reach one more person who didn’t know what a great couple of weeks it is for the city, then that’s good for Manchester’ Vanessa Jackson, MIF Pioneer
MIF Pioneers provide vital backing for the Festival, helping both MIF and our artists to realise the extraordinary projects for which we’ve won international acclaim. The support of MIF Pioneers makes a major difference to the quality of our work, allowing us to the freedom to realise our creative ambitions and stage a Festival that brings the world to Manchester.
In return for their generous support, MIF Pioneers receive:
- Personal invitations for you and a guest to attend the MIF19 programme launch and VIP First Night Party
- Exclusive invitations to other pre-Festival gatherings with MIF donors and the MIF team
- Tickets for MIF commissions up to a value of £200, with a bespoke priority ticketing service and support from a dedicated Account Manager to help plan your Festival itinerary
- Named acknowledgment and recognition on the MIF website, in the MIF19 brochure, on special supporters’ banners at MIF venues and in Festival Square.
To join us as a MIF19 Pioneer, we suggest making a minimum donation of £1,500, either as a one-off payment or in instalments (20 monthly payments of £75 from Oct 2017 – May 2019). As MIF is a registered charity, up to £1,250 of your donation will be eligible for Gift Aid – which increases the value of your gift to us by 25%.
For more information on becoming an MIF Pioneer, please contact Emma Shiel, Development Manager on +44 (0)161 817 4512 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d like to thank all our MIF17 Pioneers for their support of this summer’s Festival.
