Walk-a-thonners do it. And now Wrimos can do it too!
You can get friends and family to sponsor your novel-writing month through StayClassy.org. All proceeds from sponsorships go to NaNoWriMo’s parent 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the Office of Letters and Light, to pay for the Young Writers Program and adult main program.
Sponsored writers receive donor thank-you gifts from NaNoWriMo at your total, combined sponsorship level. Your sponsors get the satisfaction of knowing they’ve helped bring free creative writing programs to more than 2,500 classrooms, 500 communities, and 200 libraries worldwide.
We couldn’t continue National Novel Writing Month without you, and this year, we’ll be celebrating our top fundraising partners with some Grand Prizes. In order:
- An iPad 3
- A Kindle Touch
- A 2nd-draft critique from Writer’s Digest
- And Gotham Writers’ Workshop is offering our next three top fundraisers each a 10-week writing workshop of their choice.
(If you’re looking to create a sponsorship page to raise money to attend the November 18th Night of Writing Dangerously Write-a-thon in San Francisco, that’s a different StayClassy start page, located here.)
If I fundraise using StayClassy, when will I get my halo and donor goodies?
Since you’ll be fundraising all throughout November, we’ll send you your well-deserved donor goodies in early December. That way we can send you the gifts at the correct donor level. Your halo will appear in December as well.
Will the funds I raise through StayClassy count towards my regional total?
Unfortunately, the StayClassy site is not set up to update regional donation totals. It is a separate site that is not currently set up to “talk” to NaNoWriMo’s site. If you’d like your donations to count towards your region, donate directly through our Donation Station and Store.
