Support Women Writers

You can change the life
of a woman writer by

supporting Storyknife.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, Storyknife depends on a community that share the vision that women writers deserve the time and space to devote to their craft. There are so many ways that individuals and organizations can help. We appreciate all levels of giving.

Join the hundreds of people who have already donated to support women writers. You are the reason we have been able to make Storyknife happen.

Contribute online or send funds

Individual donors can make a huge impact. Tax-deductible donations can be given online and via check to Storyknife at PO Box 75, Homer, AK 99603. Our online donation system allows you to make recurring donations as well. Monthly donations make budgeting easier for both the donor and the recipient.

Your donation makes it possible for women to write.

For instance:

  • $1000 donation pays for one month of facilities maintenance including groundskeeping and landscaping.
  • $700 donation pays to feed one writer for a month.
  • $500 donation pays to keep the gas stoves in the cabins and Eva’s House lit for a month.
  • $250 donation pays for one round of housekeeping for the cabins (done at the end of each residency period).
  • $150 donation pays for one month of phone and internet.
  • $50 donation keeps the lights on for one writer for a month.
  • $25 donation connects one writer to the internet for a month.

For $5000 an individual or organization can sponsor a fellowship for one writer in residence for one month. At that level of support, the donor is entitled to name the fellowship and, if they like, stipulate a broad level of interest they’d like to see filled. In other words, you can sponsor a fellowship for a writer who writes about the environment, or a romance writer, or a trans writer, or a writer from an inner-city. Fellowship sponsors do not have the ability to appoint residents or adjudicate applications. Please feel to contact us further if you are interested in sponsoring a fellowship.

Storyknife also welcomes donations of appreciated stock and has a brokerage account set up to accept such donations. Donating appreciated stock can be a substantial tax savings to the donor.

Make a Bequest and Leave a Legacy of Art and Community

For those looking to play an important role in securing Storyknife’s future, a planned or deferred gift is the ultimate way to help.

By establishing a planned gift with Storyknife, you become a Storyknife Visionary, one of a group of donors who have provided for Storyknife in their will or other estate plans.

Planned gifts not only benefit Storyknife, but they can also greatly benefit you through tax savings. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about this option.

Join Whetstone

Whetstone is a fund established by Storyknife residents to continue to support women writers.

To join Whetstone as a Storyknife alum (or alum to be) or someone who loves a woman writer whose life was impacted by her time at Storyknife, click here.
