Donate To NYWC!

“In my writing space…  I can almost become all that I hope to be on paper.”

–A participant at NYWC’s workshop at the Creative Center, a writing workshop for people living with cancer.

Join us and become part of a community of writers and activists committed to creating an inclusive city that honors the voices and lives of everyone. Your contribution will help to ensure our vital programs can continue to flourish citywide. All donors who give $50 or more over a one-year period will receive a free NY Writers Coalition tote bag. 

Giving to NYWC is easy! You can choose to either support one of our six writing programs (Criminal Justice, Health & Wellness, Homeless & Formerly Homeless Writers, LGBTQ, Women & Girls, Youth Writers) individually or choose to simply make a general contribution and we’ll spread your gift around to each program. You can also choose to either make a recurring donation or a one-time gift. Just click the button below whichever program you’d like to make a donation to and you’ll be taken to a form where you can insert your billing information and select whether you’d like to make a recurring donation or a one-time gift.

All are fantastic ways to give and all qualify you for our different giving levels outlined below.

Our Programs

Below is a list of our outreach workshop program areas. You can find a full listing of all of our outreach workshop sites here, organized by program.

If you choose to donate to a specific program, we’ll keep you updated on special news and events from that program. If you give $50 or more over a one-year period, you’ll also receive free copies of any new publications released in that program for a whole year after your donation! Consider it like a subscription! Most importantly you’ll be helping to support the artistic expression of all the workshop participants who frequent these programs.

And if you choose to give a general donation, don’t worry! Give $50 or more over a one-year period and we’ll send you a free NYWC Press publication as well.
