#GivingTuesday and giving back
Thank you to an anonymous donor who has offered a $200 challenge grant for our branch of the California Writers Club! Let’s maximize this contribution to energize our mission to support and educate writers. Our continued work brings fresh voices to literary culture and creates a stronger arts community in the East Bay.
Our ongoing fundraising program is our monthly raffle. One lucky person who attends our monthly meetings wins a book by one of our authors! Another lucky person wins a bottle of wine or specialty consumable. Club authors, please donate a book or a bottle. One raffle ticket is FREE with meeting fee ($5 members/$10 public) and more are for sale for $1 each or 6 for $5.
Our members donate books, time, writing, and money to help other nonprofits.
- One of our members just donated in the name of CWC to Chapter 510 & the Land of Make Believe, which supports youth writing and voices. Another of our members started a support group to nurture young writers.
- Several members have been published in anthologies that are fundraisers, like this one with proceeds going to RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, and the ACLU.
- Our president, Kristen Caven, arranged the donation of 3000 copies of her book to parent organizations to help understand and end bullying.
- Our speaker chair, Kymberlie Ingalls, is hosting an annual comedy show and auction to fundraise for Toys for Tots and the Bay Area Collective… Donate toys and books and get your tickets now ($20) for this fun, Sunday, December 10 event at PF Changs in Walnut Creek!
Please post other donation opportunities in the comments. Happy Giving Tuesday!
