If you enjoy everything Wordfest does to help connect audiences of all ages to the world’s best authors, please consider donating to our Legacy Fund. Contributions go toward an unrestricted reserve that can be accessed in future years to continue to innovate and redesign programs for long-term sustainability. Your support couldn’t be more timely as we look ahead to returning to live events AND online shows in 2022 and beyond. We will also be launching a new digital YOUth channel for teens, vital programming that your generosity will help make available for free to schools and youth workers in Calgary and then nationally.
