Donate to The Muse Writers Center

There are five different ways your tax-deductible donation can help The Muse Writers Center:

Sponsor our New Center: Contributors will be able to sponsor tables, desks, chairs, and other furniture in amounts ranging from $20-$400, as well as sponsor classrooms, the library, the auditorium, and other rooms in amounts ranging from $500-$7,500. All donations are tax-deductible and all donors will be acknowledged with a thank you plaque on the item(s) or room(s) sponsored as well as special recognition at our grand opening and throughout the year.

Tuition Assistance Donation: This is our most important special fund. We offer low-cost, high-quality creative and creative writing classes, but sometimes people can't afford a class. It's our policy to never turn anyone away from taking a class because they can't afford it. We established The Tuition Assistance Fund to help defray the cost of tuition to those who need it. Make your tax-deductible donation to this important fund.

Conference & Craft Development Funding: The Julia Hislop Conference & Craft Development Fund awards current and past students at The Muse Writers Center funding and scholarships for participation in writers conferences and other craft-development opportunities, and can be used to help pay a portion of their tuition, expenses, and/or conference fees. Make your tax-deductible donation to this important fund.

General Fund Donation: We're a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and your General Fund donation helps us with our day-to-day expenses (rent, utilities, supplies, and other operating expenses) as well as building for our future. We definitely appreciate—and use wisely—all general fund donations. Make a tax-deductible donation to this important fund.

College Scholarship Fund: The Joan Rorke-McClure Futures Scholarships are awarded each September to current and past students at the Muse Writers Center to help pay a portion of their tuition and/or expenses involved with beginning or continuing undergraduate or graduate study in the field of creative writing.
