Thanks to you this has been an astonishing 50th Anniversary year for the Poetry Center and for the many people in our community who are deeply moved by the power of poetry and literature. You have my heartfelt gratitude for your past support of the Poetry Center. Donors like you are at the core of everything we do and everything we dream we can accomplish together. Your contribution allows us to reach new audiences for poetry and to continue to nurture the thriving community of readers, writers and lifelong learners we’ve served for decades.
The impact of your gift is enduring.
Did you know that each $100 we raise through the Friends of the Poetry Center enables one 4 to 8 year old to attend our Saturday morning Poetry Joeys program? A contribution of $500 supports a corrido contest residency in a high school classroom. A gift of $1,000 helps us bring a visiting poet to Tucson. By supporting the Poetry Center, part of your personal legacy is woven into the fabric of this timeless art.
As we bring our 50th anniversary celebrations to a close we’re already hard at work on our 2011–2012 season. Will you give now to help us continue to provide free community programming that allows us to bring poetry and literature to so many? Thank you for your generosity and partnership as we do the work set forth by our founder, Ruth Stephan—to maintain and cherish the spirit of poetry here and beyond.
Sincerely, Gail Browne, Executive Director
