Support Us

Donate to the Festival

Help us to bring the best Canadian and international authors to BC audiences. Make a donation to the Vancouver Writers Fest and receive a tax receipt for the full value of your gift, as well as great benefits.

Donate your Aeroplan Miles

The majority of the authors who attend the Festival are on book tours, but the VWF is responsible for covering travel costs for a handful of writers. To help cover travel expenses, we have partnered with Aeroplan's Beyond Miles, a program that enables charities to pool donated Aeroplan miles in a self-administered account. Please consider donating your Aeroplan miles today, we will accept donations of any amount.

Sponsorship Opportunities

A partnership with the Writers Fest is an opportunity to align your company's name with an exciting Festival that brings literacy, education and the enjoyment of reading to Vancouver and Lower Mainland audiences. Whether you are committed to supporting education, arts, culture or literacy, we believe there is an opportunity for a successful and valuable joint venture. Your sponsorship package will be tailored to your specific needs to guarantee maximum benefit.

Alma Lee Legacy Fund

The Vancouver Writers Fest needs the growing resources, flexibility, and financial stability that only an endowment can provide. Gifts to the Alma Lee Legacy Fund will be held in perpetuity, and the interest generated will be an annual source of support for the Festival, forever.

In-Kind Donations

The Vancouver Writers Fest presents an annual scotch tasting fundraiser, which includes a fabulous silent auction. We accept in-kind donations of fine alcohol, getaways, restaurant vouchers, sports event tickets etc for the silent auction, and a tax receipt for the full value of your donation is available upon request. If you are interested in donating a silent auction item, please email the Development & Marketing Assistant Arielle Spence.
