Sponsorship & Donations

Now a Non-Profit!

Kim Bridgford’s family are requesting that donations be made to the scholarship fund in lieu of flowers. Click on the link above to be taken to a secure form, or send a check made out to Poetry by the Sea Inc. to Anna Evans, PO Box 115, Hainesport NJ 08036. Thank you. We miss Kim with all our hearts, and will use your generosity to help her vision to go on.

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

We need your support to make Poetry by the Sea a success and to coax out, in the midst of winter, “this present sun” that reminds us of what our fullest and generous selves can be and can achieve together.

We invite you to sponsor Poetry by the Sea by choosing an event, or perhaps an evening reading or concert. Or to purchase a table at our banquet and share your vision for how the arts can strengthen and develop communities in our region. Or to ensure a seat at the great table of the arts for everyone who wishes to be here, irrespective of economic means: our students, our community, our fellow poets.

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.

Please join us!
