The Martha's Vineyard Book Festival is free due to the generous support of donors like you and our sponsors. We want to keep it that way and make it accessible to everyone. To continue to offer a diverse program and bring authors to the island to participate in the festival, we need your support. 

The Chilmark Town Affairs Council, the parent organization of MVBF and the Author Lecture Series, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization.  All financial contributions are fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  

Donors over $500 will receive invitations to invitation only events with the authors during the festival. These exclusive events will give donors the opportunity to meet the authors informally.
