Not to brag or anything, but we’ve had a heckuva* year — especially for working at it officially for fewer than twelve months. Here are a few of our 2016 highlights:
- 325 new and founding members
- 50 workshops, author and networking events
- 225 hours of programming
- More than 1,600 participants
- Partnerships with Cleveland Public Library, Cleveland Museum of Art and others
- Awarded our 501c3 tax-exempt status
- We’ve been working hard to build a sustainable, high quality organization that represents and serves the writers and the readers that make up Northeast Ohio’s deep, broad, and remarkable literary community. Recently, we launched our first annual campaign.
For every donation, an anonymous funder will match yours and others’ gifts, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $5,000.00. If you’re not already a member, you will automatically become one – through March 2018. And as a token of our gratitude, we’ll send you a cool gift.
But wait, there’s more! Thanks to several generous board members, from Thanksgiving through Giving Tuesday (November 29th), every membership payment or gift made ($5.00 or larger) will garner an additional $20.00 donation, plus all the processing fees for your gift.
Thank you for your support of Literary Cleveland.
