Donate to the WFNS
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 appoximately 600 members, at all career stages, for whom we coordinate special projects & events and administer invaluable ongoing programs & awards.
Our current areas of fundraising focus: operating costs for our Alistair MacLeod Mentorship Program & Writers in the Schools (WITS) program and endowments for our Nova Scotia Poetry Award & Ann Connor Brimer Award for Atlantic Canadian Children’s Literature.
You can donate to these and other programs 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.
If contemplating a donation in the amount of $10 or $15, consider showing your love for WFNS by purchasing a 2020 Poetry in Motion Postcard Set (celebrating the 2020 theme, “Journeys”), a classic black t-shirt emblazoned with the new WFNS logo, or a coloured t-shirt commemorating the epic battle during our 2020 Writing Rumble! fundraiser between team Dirty Punchuators and team Exclamation Pints!
