Do you believe in the the power of the arts to transform lives?

As Poetry by the Sea moves into this next phase, we hope that you, as someone who shares Dr. Kim Bridgford’s vision, will support our conference. Overcoming the losses and obstacles of the past few years has required a major effort. Your backing will be a substantial validation of that effort. Please consider making one of these gifts:

● Leadership donation: A gift of more than $1000 in a single year.
● Sustaining donation: A gift of $100 to $999 in a single year.
● Supporting donation: A gift of any amount up to $99 in a single year.

Because we have no institutional backers, we rely on donations to help us fund full ($1200), partial ($1000), and conference ($600) scholarships and meet the financial obligations of the conference. To remain viable, the conference needs financial support beyond registration fees.

Note: Poetry by the Sea now has pending nonprofit status. When permanent 501(c)(3) status is granted, it will be retroactive for 2022. Then donations made in 2022 will be eligible as tax deductions.

Whatever your level of interest, we appreciate your support with an open hand and an open heart. Together, we can make Poetry by the Sea a place where poets and scholars, editors and teachers, students and agents of change gather to see and hear how the spoken and written word can vitalize our communities and nourish our souls.
