Scholarship Fund for TKP

Join our team as a contributing Patron. 20+ year commitment nationally, in New York and now virtually to advancing the next generation through its multi-disciplinary writing and arts programs and projects.

Specifically, your support will provide middle and high school students with customized instruction and academic enrichment in literacy, writing across all media, digital fluency, and communications. Students forge new friendships through dynamic, creative outlets while learning in small groups and being mentored by accomplished teaching artists.

 

CREATIVE GIFTING

FUNDRAISING GOALS

 

 I Write & GO! 

$10,000 or twenty $500/event donations (each donation is fully tax-deductible in New York) by June 1st is our goal to launch a series of free Meet the Author summer events from July - September.  One Author (fiction, nonfiction, sports, comics, game maker) meets in-person (if venue or park regulations allow) or virtually with the first three middle or high school students who sign up online for coaching in storytelling and their writing.  Our aim is to announce and coordinate 200 events in New York for 600 eager young writers and publish their final stories in the Fall.
