Make a Bequest to Stella

Leaving a bequest is a substantial and lasting way of contributing to the future of the Stella Prize. Your bequest, however big or small, could make a huge difference to Stella’s goals of celebrating and promoting Australian women’s writing, empowering and educating young people through the literary arts, and encouraging future generations of Australian women writers.

Including a bequest to the Stella Prize in your Will is a simple task. When you make a Will, or update your existing one, ask your solicitor to include a bequest to the Stella Prize. There are a number of ways you can do this and we suggest you discuss your options with your solicitor and your family to see which one is right for you.
