Our Annual Campaign 2017

Join Our Campaign and Change a Person’s Life

DONATE NOW

We are pleased to announce the launch of our five-week annual campaign to raise funds to support our community programs.

Week 1: This week’s spotlight is Red Bank Middle School, where we offer writing workshops to about 450 students per year in 4th through 8th grades.

One of our students who has touched us with her heart and talent is Jackie.

We met Jackie two years ago at Red Bank Middle School in our 7th grade writing workshop where we gave her the opportunity to write and share her stories. Jackie has had to grow up quickly, helping raise two younger siblings, one a child with Down Syndrome. Her siblings are the loves of her life, but there are times when Jackie just wants to be a regular teenager.

Writing helps Jackie make sense of her life, giving her confidence as she expresses emotions and makes connections that wouldn’t be possible any other way.

Jackie has thrived at Project Write Now––in our after-school program, sharing her writing at our teen “Voices & Verse,” and publishing in our online literary magazine, Bridge Ink. Now she’s in high school and interning with us. We’re so grateful to Jackie for sharing her writing and talents!

Without you, we couldn’t do this important work!

We ask that you make a gift to support the programs that allow Jackie and others like her to grow, to have a voice, to share their stories so they feel less alone in their experiences.

Highlights at Red Bank Middle School include:

*reaching approximately 450 students annually
*publication of eight anthologies since 2015
*end-of-year writers celebrations during which students read aloud selected pieces in front of an audience
*guest speakers, such as a personal banker, public speaking coach, and our artists-in-residence, including a spoken word poet and professional jazz drummer

Your donation will fund instructors, guest speakers, the publication of anthologies of student work, books, notebooks, and pens.

“Project Write Now offers so much to our students. Through writing, they experience introspection—looking at themselves and what they need—as well as the building of their interpersonal skills—communicating with one another and the exposure to something different. PWN workshops create a sense of community, compassion, and kindness. That’s what improves test scores because those relationships create the environment where learning is optimal.” —Mary Wyman, School Climate & Culture Specialist, Red Bank Middle School
