It has never been easier to support The Orwell Foundation
The Orwell Foundation is an independent charity which exists to continue the legacy of the British author and journalist George Orwell (1903 – 1950).
Whether through the prestigious Orwell Prizes, through the Orwell Youth Prize educational programme, or through the growing number of Orwell-related activities which take place under its auspices, the Foundation aims to use Orwell’s work to celebrate honest writing and reporting, uncover hidden lives and confront uncomfortable truths – and, in doing so, to promote Orwell’s values of integrity, decency and fidelity to truth.
Through this work we hope to connect with the many different constituencies to whom Orwell and his writings are a source of inspiration, from policy-makers and politicians to students and schoolchildren, and to offer a platform for debate and discussion designed to appeal to the widest possible public audience.
Your donations will go towards:
- Supporting The Orwell Youth Prize’s educational programme, from supporting young writers through our Paisley workshops and Wigan Sunshine House project, to providing resources for teachers and students and enabling school workshops across the UK.
- Expanding and maintaining the Foundation’s programme of educational events and resources, from innovative live readings, to public lectures and discussions, to our regularly updated library of work by and about George Orwell.
