Individual Sponsorship

Want to encourage writing from faith perspective? Consider sponsoring a The Word Awards $500 book award category or a $250 article/short piece category of your choice.  You will have the opportunity to present the award to the winner in your category at our annual Awards Gala held each June.


To express your passion for a particular writing genre and your commitment to making a difference in the lives of writers who are Christian, why not become a sustaining sponsor?

We ask for a five year pledge to the award category you wish to adopt. Payments may be made annually, or in one lump sum at the beginning of the term.

Short Article Awards are available for Sustaining Sponsors for a gift of $1000 per year for 5 years.

Book Awards are available for Sustaining Sponsors for a gift of $2000 per year for 5 years.


The Word Awards can also be sponsored as memorials to honour an avid reader or writer in your family or community. Do you want to make a larger gift and perhaps name an award for someone you know?  Get in touch with us to learn more about being a Sustaining Sponsor of special awards.

Other ways you can partner with us to encourage Canadian writers who are Christian:

    • donate toward transportation costs to bring winners to accept their award in person
    • help with reception expenses (or become the sole sponsor of the awards reception!)
    • provide services to televise The Word Awards Gala
    • give a bursary so a new writer can attend Write Canada, the premier conference for authors, editors, publishers and speakers in the Christian community
