The Federation of BC Writers is grateful for all of the contributions we receive from our community. In supporting the federation, you are supporting artists and artistic practice across BC and the Yukon. We have several options for donations including one time, monthly, and annual contributions.
To ensure the best use of these donations, we ask donors to let us know where you would like your dollars used. Additional fund categories may be added at later dates based on requests from donors. All donations of over $20 will receive a tax receipt.
Thank you for your consideration!
The Main Fund Categories are as follows:
Membership Scholarship Fund
The scholarship fund is designed to provide memberships for persons in our community in need. We value keeping our organization accessible to as many people as possible and for that reason, funds devoted to this project allow us to extend scholarships so that those who might not otherwise be able to cover the cost can be a part of our organization.
New Initiatives Fund
The Federation is keen to expand programs and services. This fund allows us to develop programming, have staff resources to support it, and seek additional funds to keep them running long term. For the 2022 calendar year, this fund will focus on direct writing supports and developing writing programs for youth.
Writing Programming Fund
This fund is to support the federation in paying artists for their work in offering workshops, readings, and other events for writers. Funds dedicated to this project allow us to keep programming consistent and to ensure we pay artists fairly for their contribution to the organization.
