The Stella Prize

Stella Forever Fund

The Stella Forever 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. Thanks to the generosity of our wide community of donors, Stella successfully raised almost $1 million by 2020.

With an extraordinary gift of $1 million from Paula McLean in 2021, and the support of leading philanthropists from across the country, we are close to achieving our goal.

Now, Stella is calling on individuals passionate about gender equity and outstanding Australian literature to help us reach our target by 28 April 2022, to coincide with the milestone of the tenth Stella Prize.

By giving to the Stella Forever Fund, you will ensure that the Stella Prize becomes a permanent fixture for generations of writers and readers to come.

Stella publicly acknowledges gifts over $500. Please let us know if you'd like to remain anonymous by checking the box on our form, or emailing us at:
