Every day, DONATIONS like yours help us to provide more services and offerings statewide. Thank you for your support!
The Annual Fund
NHWP's long-term financial stability depends on contributions to the Annual Fund. Membership dues, workshop fees, ticket sales, and merchandise revenue account for just a fraction of our income. Donations to the Annual Fund help bridge the gap between "earned" income and the actual costs of delivering services to our members and New Hampshire audiences. Both your membership and Annual Fund gifts help to sustain us. We hope you'll give generously at whatever level you can afford.
Planned gifts to the New Hampshire Writers' Project provide long-term financial stability, and can also benefit a donor's heirs and help the donor realize income tax deductions or reduce estate taxes. If you are considering a planned gift or bequest, please contact our executive director.
Jane Kenyon Fund
NHWP also helps manage the Jane Kenyon Fund, which honors the memory of former NH Poet Laureate Jane Kenyon and supports the creation and performance of poetry in New England. The Fund presents a cash award to an outstanding New Hampshire poet every two years, and supports the purchase of the award winner's books for NH libraries.
Writers' Block Parties
For members who are interested in hosting a reading in their home, our Writers' Block Parties bring New Hampshire authors together with special guests for uniquely creative evenings which feature dinner, readings, and conversations with the authors. Over the past several years, Writers' Block Parties have raised more than $15,000 to support the Writers' Project mission. Featured readers have included David Carroll, Rebecca Rule, Marie Harris, Ernie Hebert, Sy Montgomery, Howard Mansfield, and Mary Ann Esposito, among others. Please contact us if you're thinking about hosting this special fundraiser.
