Cave Canem Fellows Campaign

For more than 14 years, Cave Canem co-founders Toi Derricotte and Cornelius Eady have led the way in providing life-changing opportunities for hundreds of deserving African American poets. Now, Cave Canem fellows are mobilizing to raise $50,000 to sustain the organization they love. Each has set a personal goal of acquainting friends, family and colleagues with the transformational opportunities Cave Canem provides, and of raising $200, one person at a time, to sustain our cherished “home for black poetry.”

Consider contributing to our Fellows campaign—no donation is too small—and help us raise $50,000 by the end of January 2011, the amount needed to offset dramatic funding cutbacks from foundations and governments sources.

If you are giving for the first time, consider making a $25-$50 contribution. If you are renewing your commitment, please add 10% to the amount you gave last year. Donating is simple, fast and completely secure. If you choose to pay by check, you can download a donation form. Your generosity will help Cave Canem succeed in 2011 and beyond.

On a personal note, I don't think I would have had the courage to pick up a pen without the support of Cave Canem. Consider making a donation to help the next generation of African American poets grow and thrive. Thanks!
