Two Ways to Support The Poetry Project

img_4516-680x453Hello Friends,

As we approach the end of the year, we are asking you to support The Poetry Project’s mission to foster the reading and writing of contemporary poetry by making a tax deductible contribution.

Your gift makes it possible for us to bring over 160 poets to perform at the Project each year. It also supports the infrastructure that ensures the most expansive outreach possible, so that we can share widely the innovative work of the poets we present, both in informing our community about upcoming events at the Project, and in providing documentation of those events.                                                                                                                                John Giorno 2014 (C) Ted Roeder

The goal for our end of the year appeal is to raise at least $10,000. We hope that you’ve had an amazing experience at the Project recently, as audience or as performer, (or both!) and will take a moment to help us continue doing the work we do and garnering visibility for it.

Make A Donation

If you are unable to make a tax deductible donation at this time, another way to support the Project is through purchasing an advance ticket to our annual 41st Annual New Year’s Day Marathon Benefit Reading. Tickets are $20 and on sale here (after 12/1). All money raised by the Marathon covers artist’s stipends and production costs for the 80+ readings we’ll present this season.

We hope to see you soon, and wish you a very happy 2015.
