Organizing and paying for The Montana Book Festival is always a grassroots effort, with individuals and organizations from Montana’s literary community all pitching in time and funding. Your help, alongside theirs, is essential to the success of the festival and the event's longevity.

A single donation of any amount is greatly appreciated. If you choose to do so, please tell two friends and challenge them to do the same. Another wonderful option is to become a festival partner. By donating in increments starting at $50, you will receive benefits during the duration of the festival. This option is an incredible help. All donations to be made to Arts Missoula, the fiscal sponsor for the Montana Book Festival. If writing a check please put MBF on the memo line. Federal ID# 81-0391373. 

Any funds raised will cover honorariums and offset travel expenses for authors; to rent proper venues for readings and panels; to host a reception thanking our participating authors, editors, publishers and booksellers; and, finally, to make sure we can keep this festival on track for many years to come.

Thanks for your time and support—we hope you'll join us in Missoula (or join us in spirit) for a true literary extravaganza.
