How will NaNoWriMo use my donation?

The majority of your donation will go directly toward our nonprofit programs. Some examples of our annual impact:
  • 400,000 participants who explore their creative voices during NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo.

  • 100,000 students and educators who share stories in their classrooms through the Young Writers Program.

  • 1,200 public libraries, bookstores, and community spaces hosting creative gatherings.

  • 1,000 worldwide volunteers helping writers ignite their imaginations.
As in all nonprofits, a smaller percentage will pay for management and fundraising expenses.
