Friends of Storyknife

We are grateful to all who have donated to help make Storyknife a reality. Thank all of you for believing in the power of women’s stories.

Make Her Mark

What better legacy for that important woman in your life than to have her name woven into the very fabric of Storyknife itself?

The main house.

The main house is fully funded at $250,000. It is named Eva’s House in honor of Eva Saulitus.

Name either the Library or the Great Room inside the Main House:
Donate $100,000 and the first name of the woman of your choice will be prominently displayed on a custom-made sign in one of these two rooms. Their names will be seen by everyone who walks in the door of Storyknife, every writer, every employee, every sponsor and every visitor, a memory that will endure so long as Storyknife exists.

Name a Cabin:
Donate $50,000 and the first name of the woman of your choice will be prominently displayed above the door of a cabin. Cabin sponsors include:

  • Arliss Sturgulewski, naming her cabin for her daughter-in-law, Carol.
  • Jeannie Penney, naming her cabin for her mother, Betty Rice.
  • Cathy Rasmuson, naming her cabin for Halibut Cove artist Diana Tillion.
  • Atwood Foundation, naming their cabin for Alaskan author Evangeline Atwood.
  • A fifth cabin has been pledged but is not yet named.
  • Click here to help fund the effort to name the sixth cabin for Sue Grafton. Read more about it here.

Name the Infrastructure.

Maybe not as sexy as naming a building, but necessary and in some ways even more fun. Here goes:

  • Septic system — $50,000 A sign on the leech field. As in, “Dana’s Septic System.”
  • Well and water — $25,000 A sign near the wellhead.
  • Power — $20,000 A sign near the power distribution box.
  • Main parking and construction pads — $20,000 A sign as you drive onto the property.
  • Handicapped cabin additional costs — $6,000 A sign in front of the cabin.
  • This one is a want, not a need — $125,000 to bring in natural gas, cost as estimated by Enstar. Natural gas would significantly lower our operating costs. A sign where the gas line came in to the property.
  • As is this–solar for Storyknife. We’ve been working with Ben and Dan at Anchorage Solar and they’ve given us an estimate of $40,000, which will pay for enough panels to zero out our electric bill. Turns out the Storyknife building site is perfectly situated for solar.

Name a Garden or Trail Spot:
Donate $10,000 and the first name of the woman of your choice will be prominently displayed on a bench or custom sign. (12 available.)

Name the Pond:
There is a fresh water seep at the bottom of the property that we can either build a boardwalk over or dig out for a pond. I think a pond would be much more fun to name for my mom (or yours), don’t you? $50,000

The trail follows the lot lines of the Storyknife property, with spectacular views from every foot of it. See photos here.

Other Ways to Support Storyknife

Every donation helps make Storyknife a reality. We gratefully receive donations in any amount, and recurring monthly donations are particularly helpful. Please know that your donations are tax deductible and any amount helps us keep this fundraising campaign going until we meet our $1,000,000 goal for building the entire facility. After that time, we’ll also need funds to keep the lights on, food on the table, and pay the staff.

For example:
$200 each month ($2400 per year) – can feed a writer
$100 each month ($1200 per year) – can grow a garden
$40 a month ($480 per year) – can bring the light to a cabin
$25 a month ($300 per year) – can connect a writer (internet/phone for a cabin for the year)

Please consider donating in any amount. Click here to set up monthly donations of any amount or a one time donation in any amount. Or see the information below on how to donate by check.
