SAL counts on supporters like you to help us bring our community together - people of all ages and backgrounds - to read and write, to listen deeply, and to bring forward the voices we all need to hear. In fact 60% of our annual revenue comes from charitable donations. Please join us to power another year of inspiration, conversation, and community.

$10,000 inspires 200 students for a full year at one public school serving a low-income community through SAL’s Writers in the Schools (WITS) program.

$5,000 supports 10 local musicians and writers in creating original songs, art and essays inspired by visiting SAL authors to broaden the community conversation. 

$2,500 brings the outstanding original creative writing of 130 local K-12 students to the greater community in a professionally designed and published anthology. 

$1,000 employs a local, professional writer to teach and inspire K-12 students for one month through SAL’s WITS program.

$500 increases access to an original lecture by one of the most important writers and thinkers of our time through real-time open captioning. 

$250 brings SAL’s WITS program to three K-12 students for an entire year. 

$100 provides tickets for 10 students to be inspired by a nationally known author at a SAL event.

$50 funds one K-12 classroom of WITS students in celebrating their writing through classroom anthologies, poetry slams or original books.
