Support the FOLD

One of the goals of the FOLD is to create a diverse community of readers and writers. But putting on a festival of this magnitude is a significant financial undertaking that relies heavily on the generosity of donors, corporations, and volunteers.

Your personal donation will help bring the Festival of Literary Diversity to Brampton and will contribute to activities and programs for readers of all ages, stages, and experiences. If you wish, you can earmark your donation to support our educational, youth or performance events.

Support the FOLD in one of the following ways:


The Festival of Literary Diversity is the only festival of its kind, featuring some of the best and most important writers who will share their work, their insight, and their experiences in the heart of historic downtown Brampton come to – one of Canada’s most diverse cities.
