Friend of the Festival Sign Up

Two Ways to Donate!

Becoming a Friend of the Festival or Sponsoring the Festival are Great Ways to Ensure the Future of the Festival While Supporting Local Literacy Programs!

Sponsor the Festival

The Tucson Festival of Books is a community-wide celebration of literature. Offered free-of-charge, the Festival exists to improve literacy rates among children and adults. Proceeds that remain after Festival expenses have been paid are contributed to local literacy programs.

Sponsors provide financial gifts at a variety of levels to ensure we are able to meet this important mission. All monetary gifts of $1,000 or more are considered sponsorships.

To learn how your company, foundation or family may become a Festival Sponsor, please view our on-line sponsor packet (pages may be downloaded and printed for your convenience):
