 How You Can Help                                                                                
 While substantial one-time cash donations are always welcome, there are other ways that you can help Florida Writers Foundation.   As a fairly new charity (established in November 2007), we are all volunteers helping to promote literacy and to enhance writing skills.A small donation, $10-$20 per month by FWA members and other friends of literacy can make a huge difference!

FWF is currently seeking more authors to speak in schools during literacy events, as well as producing “Meet the Author” series of videos for the Florida Department of Education.

Below are some in-kind items that we could use to continue our work.  If you’re able to volunteer or  one of these items or services, please contact us.

Professional Videographers, throughout Florida.  We’re looking for videographers who would like to volunteer a few hours  to tape authors speaking within a school or historical setting.  The videographer/video company would be listed in the credits for any “Meet the Author” videos that they help produce, as well as on our website.

Children and Young Adult Authors willing to volunteer to visit a Florida school, historical site, or nature area.  Non-fiction authors are also needed.  Some authors may be asked to volunteer to be an author appearing in one of FWF’s “Meet the Author” videos for the Florida Department of Education.

Silent Auction Items. Any donation for FWF Silent Auction on will help FWF to raise needed funds.  We will list the donated item or service on our Silent Auction website, with a link back to the donor’s website.   These items will be displayed during the Florida Writers Association’s Writers Conference, where hundreds of writers, editors, and publishers will meet in Lake Mary for a three day writer’s conference.  The FWF Silent Auction link will also be listed in FWA’s eNews to their 1500+ members. Visit our Silent Auction website to find out more.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss any of our needs or events.  We would love to hear from you.

Florida Writers Foundation is fortunate to have the support of our wonderful community.  We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the individuals and the businesses who have volunteered time and expertise, in-kind donations, funds, and Silent Auction donations.  Thank you all!
