The Kimsey Foundation Extends #GivingTuesday Match

WOW. Friends: our gratitude overflows for your support of this campaign. Last night, with two weeks left to go until the official #GivingTuesday, we reached our initial goal thanks to your extreme generosity. Thank you to all who have already donated and helped spread the word. Now more than ever, we find the work of uplifting young voices to be imperative, and we’re glad you feel the same.

Even more exciting news: The Kimsey Foundation heard about the success of our campaign, and decided to challenge us even more. Thanks to their generous support, we will still be matching all gifts dollar for dollar until Giving Tuesday (Nov 29), up to $15,000. We’re already more than a third of the way there! Will you help us reach our new goal?

Give now to double your impact and ensure DC students will become published young authors through our award-winning writing programs this spring. We can’t do this without your help.

Can’t give right now but still want to support our efforts?
