Make a Donation

The Stella Prize needs your support. Every single donation is important to us and helps to secure our future, enabling us to continue working to celebrate Australian women writers and champion cultural change. The Stella Prize has achieved much in a very short time, but its future is not secure. To ensure Stella continues as a force for good, please consider donating.

All donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible, and all of it helps us help Australian women writers. Thank you.
