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