Yes! I want to make a monthly gift to Rain City Slam, a fiscally sponsored project of CascadiaNow!.
Your kind donation will support Rain City's mission to create a revolutionary space for spoken word poets, both in Seattle and across the country. These funds will:
- Send our poets to the National Poetry Slam, Women of the World Poetry Slam, and the Individual World Poetry Slam;
- Support the annual Cascadia Regional Poetry Slam, which includes the top poets from Seattle, Olympia, Portland, Vancouver, Spokane, and Boise;
- Compensate professional poets to teach writing, editing, and performance as part of our outreach and educational programming to at-risk and marginalized youth; our organization's three-year goal is to establish an ongoing, fully-funded poetry workshop series in five local colleges, two local high schools, and a local youth detention center.
We thank you in advance for your contribution and hope to see you at our weekly Wednesday slam!
