GREENSBORO—Today, on #GivingTuesday, we ask you to keep the North Carolina Writers’ Network in mind.
On November 27, please consider donating to the Network to support our mission to connect, promote, educate, and serve the writers of this state (and all others).
This year, we have set a modest fundraising goal of only $1,000.
I like to think that Network is more than just an organization for writers. I view the Network as one way to build vibrant communities. I appreciate that the Network brings together writers who otherwise might not be in conversation.
Actually, I like to think that the Network is a community. It isn’t the board, staff, or offices: the Network is you, and your more than 1,300 fellow writers who belong to the Network.
The Network is a community that offers inspiration, encouragement, and opportunity. The Network offers conferences that bring together hundreds of writers, from all over the state and nation. We offer scholarships and fellowships to deserving young writers, online services and resources, and contests and classes for all sorts of writers, wherever you are—geographically, professionally, or artistically. We help writers escape their offices, their attics, their coffee shops, their own minds, and find their tribe.
Since 1985, the Network has supported thousands of writers. As a Network member, you’re part of one of the largest writing organizations in the United States, and one whose heart is right here in North Carolina.
I know many worthy nonprofits will ask for support during #GivingTuesday on November 27, but please spare a thought—and a few dollars—for the NCWN.
Please visit www.ncwriters.org to give online with a VISA, MasterCard, or Discover. You also can call us at 919.308.3228 or 336.293.8844 to make your gift over the phone, or mail your check to the address below.
All we need is for one-third of you to make a small donation, and we'll meet our goal.
If half of you give, in any amount, we'll beat our goal.
If all of you give, then we'll have some Happy Holidays, indeed.
Yours in writing spirit,
