As a registered charity and not-for-profit organisation, Sydney Writers’ Festival relies on the support of generous donors and corporate partners to help us safeguard the future of Australia’s largest literary festival. Each year, SWF bring the joy of books to large and diverse audiences in Sydney and around the country, which we could not do without the support of our community. More than a third of SWF’s annual funding comes from philanthropy and corporate sponsorship. We warmly thank our Patrons and donors for their ongoing generosity and commitment to the Festival’s vision.
