Support Us

The Willy Lit Fest is staffed by a committee of dedicated volunteers who are committed to improving and promoting the benefits of literacy, reading and writing to the western suburbs of Melbourne and beyond. We are passionate about the written word, and we are eager to share this passion with our audiences and increase their enjoyment and appreciation of books and words. We actively pursue sponsorships, donations and in-kind contributions in order to create a unique and special event for our audiences. We are committed to continuous improvement, and producing a quality festival for all ages.

We are very grateful for the support we receive from our sponsors and are constantly seeking support from sponsors, big and small, in a variety of ways. Sponsorship and donations are used to support the festival’s programming, logistics and infrastructure, and to ensure the Willy Lit Fest is managed professionally, sustainably and effectively every year.

If you would like to consider sponsoring the festival, you can find more information on the benefits of sponsoring this iconic and very popular community festival, in our Williamstown Literary Festival Sponsor Options 2014 document. There are a range of sponsorshop options for community groups and small businesses through to larger organisations and institutions detailed here.

If you would prefer to give a tax free donation, (tax deductible for amounts over two dollars) please donate via our secure GiveNow page.

All donations over $100 will be listed in the Willy Lit Fest program. Every year, thousands of these programs are distributed to cafes, restaurants, businesses, residents and stakeholders to promote the festival. You will receive a tax receipt immediately upon donating.
