The 2018 Pyramid Campaign for 'Writers in the Community' is now open! Help us make a difference in the lives of Quebec kids who have been left out of the mainstream.
The "Writers in the Community" program has a powerful impact on young lives. In 2017, under the superb leadership of program coordinator Sarah Haggard, our team of writers presented 20 ten-week workshops in 13 different community organizations or schools in Montreal, Lachine, Laval, Kanesatake, Joliette and the Laurentians. In all, we worked with over 210 at-risk young people in groups small enough to really have an impact. You can read more, and see some of the writing, zines, and performances from past programs here.
We'd like to do that again in 2018.
The QWF community has been extraordinarily generous since we first launched our Pyramid campaign in 2011. For the past three years we’ve raised over $10,000; in 2017, with a last-minute flood of donations to help us meet our goal, we surpassed $15,000! Our goal for 2018 is $12,000. Here’s one way we can reach it:
• 35 “Count me in!” donations of $30
• 49 “I can do more!” donations of $50
• 35 “I had a good year!” donations of $100
• 8 “I have a real job!” donations of $500
• 1 “Angel” donation of $1000
To make donations, simply click on the “Donate Now” button below the pyramid and select “Writers in the Community Program” from the “Fund/Designation” dropdown menu. Be sure to include your address so we can mail you your tax receipt, and let us know how you’d like your name to appear when we acknowledge your gift. Or, you can send a cheque to:
