November Donations: Matched!

It’s #GivingNovember, and 826DC’s board has generously offered to match up to $20K of donations that come in before 11:59 PM on November 30th, 2023!

No need to wait for Giving Tuesday! This #GivingNovember, you can have an outsized impact on the students we’re writing with right now.

826DC programs are in full swing. We’ve written spooky stories. We’re drafting tales from our real lives. We’re writing poetry about our inner strengths. We’re crafting pieces with sentient broccoli, scarlet macaws, and cupcake-pooping dragons. Your support makes it possible to continue and expand all of the joyful work we do with young people and their teachers across the District.

Large or small, one-time or recurring, all gifts currently go twice as far.
