Donor Benefit Program

We are deeply appreciative of the many donors from across the country who have supported and attended our literary event over the course of our past 26 years, helping to bring important voices to the Sun Valley stage.

As a cultural institution, we continue to depend upon their support; our donors are our partners and treasured friends, whose gifts are vital to our success. (In recent years, their gifts accounted for over 50% of our funding, with the remaining offset by pass sales.)


Details of our 2021 Donor Benefit Program will be posted here early in the new year, when we know the direction the Conference will take in July.

For more information or questions about becoming a donor, please contact Robin Eidsmo, Executive Director, or Marcia Mode-Stavros, Associate Director, Donor Relations. 208-727-7024 or

If you’d like to join our Family of Donors now, please download and print our DONATION FORM and mail it back to us.

It would also be our privilege to accept gifts in honor or memory of your loved one. Please print out the Memorial and Tribute Donation Form and send it our way.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and personal checks.

Sun Valley Writers’ Conference is a 501(c)(3) Idaho nonprofit corporation.

Community Outreach

Your support helps us expand and deepen our community outreach efforts in the Sun Valley area and beyond. We offer scholarships and fellowships for budding writers, free talks during the conference for the public, and have an expanding schools program, including our first fall schools speaker in 2019.

Volunteer Program

We couldn’t accomplish this event without the help of our many loyal volunteers, who come back year after year to help with the heavy lifting of making the Conference a reality.
