The Writers’ Guild of Alberta (WGA) needs your help.
The WGA relies heavily on government grants and the generosity of individuals and corporations, all of which can be unpredictable in times of economic uncertainty. We have created the WGA Endowment Fund with the goal of establishing longevity and future sustainability so we can continue to support Alberta writers. The growth of the endowment fund will provide a stable resource of funds regardless of a variable economy; a higher value of the fund provides a higher return.
Your donation will help towards ensuring our stability and enabling us to maintain our current programs and create new opportunities for our writers. In order to establish the fund we need to raise the initial goal of $10,000. If each member donates $10 or $20, we will reach that goal immediately.
Please consider offering your support and donating today by visiting writersguild.ca/product/endowment-fund or by calling our office at 780.422.8174 (1.800.665.5354 toll free Alberta only). The WGA Board of Directors and staff thank you for your contributions to the WGA.
The WGA strives to support, acknowledge, and value the past, present, and future contributions of writers. We believe that the literary arts matter and make a difference in the world. We support our writers through the programs we offer, including the Alberta Literary Awards, Mentorship Program, focused events, WordsWorth summer youth camp, and Manuscript Reading Service.
On behalf of the board of directors,
