“Exactly what kind of activities and programs will my gift support,” you ask?
Service to our seven writing and tutoring centers: From conducting network-wide research and assessment, to producing our annual staff development conference, to creating opportunities for chapters to share resources and exchange best practices, 826 National’s primary mission is to assist and provide infrastructure for our local chapters.
Network expansion: Another key piece of our work is to bring 826 National programs to new communities in need. Currently there are 20 domestic organizations interested in joining the network, and part of our charge is to consider new sites to welcome into the 826 network.
Creating new resources for educators: Our books Don’t Forget to Write and STEM to Story are already in use by thousands of educators, and we are eager to develop new resources to share our uniquely whimsical and engaging approach to creative writing.
These are just a few of the many ways your donation assists our chapters in serving more than 30,000 under-resourced students and more than 900 teachers across the country. All of our programs are offered free of charge, and allow our students to explore their creativity, become published authors, and develop essential writing skills.
On behalf of our volunteers, staff, and present and future wordsmiths, we thank you for your donation and your support of 826 National. We also accept gifts of stock, in-kind contributions, and more; please contact maggie [at] 826national [dot] org with questions about making a contribution.
