We are in the process of applying for 501(c)3 status to become a public charity. Our initial need is for start-up funds. These funds will be used for filing fees, office equipment and supplies, office lease expenses, and promotional materials in order to establish a face in the community.
We are one month away from the South Dakota Festival of Books in Sept. and our desire is to be fully established in the public eye before this event in order to properly present our programs to people coming from all across the state. We want to have a noticeable presence at the festival and create a membership drive to increase that presence.
We strongly believe that good writers are a rare commodity and our programs will help to train, educate, encourage and establish writers in many genres and capacities.
Please help us with this worthy cause. We will give back, perhaps by writing some things for you, should you have a need for it in the future, and in many other ways once established. Thanks for your generous (and soon-to-be tax-deductible) donation.
