The Donation Station is the part of the OLL store where Wrimos, Screnziers, and non-writing supporters can donate to the Office of Letters and Light. Wrimos have been asked to donate to NaNoWriMo's efforts since 2001, five years before the Office of Letters and Light existed. While the early years have consisted of simple email requests and a donation link on the NaNoWriMo website, the web team eventually built an entire store on the NaNoWriMo website only open during the NaNoWriMo season. Because of requests for the ability to donate year-round and the formation of the Office of Letters and Light, the current Donation Station was built, giving the ability to donate any time of year.

Donors can choose from a variety of donor levels. Each level comes with a halo (or golden ticket in the case of Script Frenzy) and donor gifts. The donor gifts vary by level, and donors can choose not to receive them if they wish for their entire donation to go to OLL. They may also choose whether they want to wear the halo or golden ticket next to their name. Donor gifts ship as immediately as possible for in-season donations, in October for off-season NaNoWriMo donations, and in March for Script Frenzy donations.

Supporters can also donate by mail via a check written in US dollars. They should indicate which event they want to receive donor gifts for (if they want gifts), their username, along with other requested information that varies by donor level. Donating directly by PayPal is also an option for those who cannot donate the minimum amount of $10 in the Donation Station or want to bypass the Donation Station checkout.
