Donors like you help us to support and grow the literary arts in the Sea to Sky corridor. There are many ways to donate to The Whistler Writing Society.
ANNOUNCING THE LITERARY ARTS LEGACY FUND
We’re thrilled to launch the Literary Arts Legacy Fund, with a goal of reaching $1 million in five years.
Established within the Community Foundation of Whistler, the Literary Arts Legacy Fund endowment campaign will enable us to deliver literary arts programming with a reliable annual source of funds.
A private donor has committed to a gift of $5000 in matching funds for our endowments. This means every dollar donated at the 2022 Festival will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5000. In addition, every dollar donated in 2022 qualifies for matching funds from the Department of Canadian Heritage. We’re hoping you’ll help us raise that $5000 over the course of the Festival.
Every donation will be entered in a draw for a prize pack of books, wine and other goodies!
Donations over $25 will receive a tax receipt.
Thank you for supporting the Whistler Writers Festival, the Writer in Residence Program, the Authors in the Schools Program, and other literary programming in the Sea to Sky corridor. Any donation you make goes directly into current and future literary programming initiatives. A charitable receipt will be issued for any donation of $25 or more. Thank you for making a difference!

Please consider making a planned gift to The Whistler Writing Society such as:
A BEQUEST IN YOUR WILL
A simple way to make a lasting gift to the community is to include a charitable bequest in your Will. We can establish a personal Fund that becomes your personal legacy of giving.
A GIFT OF SECURITIES
By giving eligible appreciated stocks to The Whistler Writing Society, you can avoid capital gains taxes that would otherwise arise from the sale of the stock. Donors also receive a tax receipt for their donation.
GIFTS OF LIFE INSURANCE
The assignment of ownership of an existing life insurance policy will be accepted by the charity. A tax receipt will be issued for the cash surrender value of the value at the time of donation. The payment of annual premiums is also a gift that generates an official receipt for income tax purposes.
Please contact Stella Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a planned gift.
