The Stella Forever Fund is an initiative to secure the Stella Prize for generations of women writers to come.
The aim of the Fund is to raise $3 million over ten years to generate prize money for the Stella Prize in perpetuity.
The endowment of the prize money in the Stella Forever Fund, and the separation of that campaign from general fundraising for Stella’s operational and core program needs, will ensure that the prize becomes a lasting legacy for writers, readers and donors alike.
