The Stella Forever Fund is an initiative to secure the future of the Stella Prize. The fund seeks to raise $3 million to endow the prize money for the Stella Prize in perpetuity.

Stella launched the Fund in 2016 with the support of visionary patrons, Paula McLean and Ellen Koshland. In 2021, Stella was honoured with an extraordinary further gift of $1 million from Paula McLean, in one of the largest donations to Australian literature to date.

Thanks to the collective generosity of our wide community of donors, Stella successfully reached its $3 million endowment target in April 2022 to coincide with the milestone of the tenth annual Stella Prize.

The Board and staff of Stella thank everyone who gave to the Stella Forever Fund. Your gift – no matter how big or small – has ensured the Stella Prize is secured for generations of writers and readers to come.
