Frequently Asked Questions

How Membership Works

The Individual Supporter membership is an annual membership, valid for a period of one year. As an individual member of the Pharos Arts Foundation, you will be the first to find out about all our events and you will be given the opportunity to reserve your tickets online or via the telephone and pay at the door if you wish a service offered only to our members. Tickets are much cheaper when you are a member and you receive a number of benefits depending on the level of membership you have chosen.

Once you make a donation, your membership will be immediately activated and you will receive your membership card within a couple of weeks.

You will then start receiving information about each of the events organised by the Pharos Arts Foundation either by E-mail or post (we highly recommend E-mail as the fastest and greener method, so please make sure that you include your E-mail address on the contribution form).

It depends on the level of your membership but as a rule of a thumb the three upper levels (Supporters, Pharos Circle and Patrons) are based on a two-ticket membership. This means you can buy two tickets at reduced price for each event. For the first level (Contributors) there is an option as to whether you would like to become a single or couple member. As a single member you will be entitled only to one discounted ticket per event, whereas as a couple member you will be entitled to two tickets.

You may reserve your tickets over the telephone or online through the Foundation’s Box Office. You can then pay for your tickets on the day of the concert at the door.

Box Office: Directly from the Foundation’s website www.pharosartsfoundation.org/Tickets_online.htm  or Tel. 22-663871 (Monday – Friday 10:00am-3:00pm)

Memberships are valid for a year (on a calendar year basis). It is best to become a friend or renew your membership at the beginning of each year to enjoy all the benefits of the membership.

Contributions are fully tax deductible under Cyprus law. All contributions can be deducted in their entirety from the supporter’s annual income tax.
