Literacy for a Lifetime

In celebration of our 35th anniversary, we are launching the Literacy for a Lifetime campaign at the 2017 Festival. Our goal is to increase our endowment funds to $1 million to ensure the Festival’s long-term sustainability and to help us continue to develop and deliver educational and community outreach programming.

The endowment funds are held and invested by the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation who have a strong track record in achieving a positive return on the funds it manages on our behalf. Further, all donations to the endowment campaign are eligible for matching funds from the Department of Canadian Heritage.

Please consider celebrating our 35th with 35!

  • $35/month for 35 months ($1,225)
  • $35
  • $350
  • $3,500

When making your donation, please indicate if it is to be directed to the endowment fund.
