Donate to the WFNS
Current fundraising focus: our Second-Wave Relief Fund, newly established to help writers in precarious financial circumstances with immediate, non-deferrable living expenses, such as utility and phone bills, housing costs, groceries, and fuel. Beginning in January, 2021, the fund will provide applying writers with one-time disbursements of up to $250.
You can donate to the Second-Wave Relief Fund by credit card or PayPal online (using the button above), by credit card over the phone (902 423-8116), and by cheque through the mail (Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia, 1113 Marginal Road, Halifax, NS B3H 4P7). Donors receive our gratitude & a charitable tax receipt for the value of their gift.
The Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia (WFNS) is a registered not-for-profit organization, with official charitable status, that exists only through the support provided by government partners, member dues, and generous donations.
WFNS is an arts service organization founded on a collaborative philosophy: writers helping writers. This philosophy informs a complete cycle of development programming (such as creative writing workshops and professional development sessions) and a wide array of professional services that support the craft of writing, the business of being a writer, and the promotion of Nova Scotia writers as integral to the province’s cultural life and creative economy. WFNS has approximately 600 members, at all career stages, for whom we coordinate special projects & events and administer invaluable ongoing programs & awards.
