The Gift Fund

The Awards Foundation

These donations go directly to prize monies for authors and illustrators of the annual CBCA Book of the Year Award, with an aim to continue financially supporting our Australian creators to pursue a craft that makes vital contributions to the enrichment of lives through quality Australian stories for young people.
