Help preserve, protect and nurture the building blocks of our books, writing and ideas

How the money is used

Your donation will support the Wheeler Centre's contribution to, and amplification of, the literary sector in Australia – nurturing the role of literature, storytelling and storymaking in Australian culture and identity.

All the writers we engage – for public events, commissioned writing, or in any other capacity – are paid at professional rates.

Word adoptions are fully tax-deductible.
