Become a donor and help young people attend MWF Schools.

Donate Now

Each year MWF welcomes thousands of young people to MWF Schools, Australia’s biggest literary event for students.

With your support, we will provide complimentary tickets to students who may not otherwise have the means to attend the Festival, through our MWF Schools Access Initiative. Make a tax-deductible donation today to help us ensure all students can hear first hand from the most exciting writers and thinkers of our time.

Following the recent disruptions to students’ learning due to COVID-19, it is more important than ever for young minds to experience the untold possibilities of language and ideas, and to encounter the writers who will delight, challenge and inspire them.

We thank you for your support.


We welcome donations of all sizes, with gifts of $500 and above acknowledged publicly on our website and in print.
