WriterHouse has just been given an incredible end-of-year fundraising opportunity. Through the generosity of several anonymous donors, we now have member matching funds for any donation received during the month of December, up to $20,000. While every donation under $100 will be double-matched, every gift of $100 or more will be triple-matched. That means your donation of $100 becomes $300. Send us $200 and we’ll receive $600 in matching funds!
What can this additional money do?
$50 will provide a membership for an at-need writer
$75 funds an art or author event
$100 funds a full scholarship for an all-day seminar
$200 funds a scholarship for a deserving young writer to attend our annual summer camp.
$500 funds the top prize for our fiction writing contest
When you donate to WriterHouse you donate to the collective power of our stories and help us fulfill our mission to promote the development of writers in our community.
But don’t take it from us.
Here’s what some of our campers and scholarship recipients have to say about how WriterHouse has benefited their lives.
“In the last three years since I was hospitalized and told I had cancer throughout my lymphatic system, I lost everything except my sense of humor. I feel this class is exactly what I need. ” –Past Scholarship Recipient
“The things I loved about WriterHouse summer camp were being with people who love writing, having a space to be creative, eating and laughing, and having a positive place to share work.” –Johanna, Age 12
“Writers are important because they teach, inspire, and entertain people.” –Jamie, Age 10.
“Writing is important because you can express your feelings in a story, also if you have trouble talking you can write your ideas down.” –Annaliese G.
