Prize Circle Patron

Support access to the best writing by women for all readers as a Prize Circle Patron

Over its 25-year-history, The Women’s Prize for Fiction has supported readers through free resources, live events, and promotional material for libraries and bookshops. This includes subsidising readers most in need, whether that’s a group of socially isolated new parents, midwives who use books to connect with colleagues outside of work, or young readers in secondary schools. With a donation of £5000 and over, you can help us enable access to great writing by women for everyone and build diverse audiences for live and virtual literature events.

Your gift is a donation, which for UK tax-payers Gift Aid can be claimed against, adding to its value*. In recognition of your support we will be delighted to acknowledge you as a Women’s Prize Circle Patron on our website and in our programmes. We’d also like to invite you to join us through unique invitations and opportunities to explore our work. These include:

  • Two tickets to the sell-out shortlist readings
  • An invitation to the glamorous award ceremony, where the winner is announced
  • An invitation to an annual patrons’ event, an opportunity to meet the judges, authors and trustees
  • Exclusive invitations to other events
  • A complimentary set of the shortlisted books
  • Association with our reader support outreach
  • Quarterly digital updates on the impact of the programmes you have funded, and be ‘in-the-know’ with our latest news and campaigns
  • thank-you for your generous support on our website

*Each level of support in the Patrons’ programme include a benefits portion which represents the cost of the scheme to the Trust and a suggested donation. The benefits can be purchased separately at the stated price; to do so, please use the contact details overleaf. The remaining balance is a suggested donation and is eligible for Gift Aid, which means we can claim 25p for every £1 you donate. For the Prize Circle Patron level, the split is: donation £4720, benefits £280.

I started to realise what fiction could be, and I thought ‘Wow! You can be ambitious, you can take on the world – you really can.
