If you are a poet or poetry-lover who wishes to help sustain The Poetry Society of New York year-round while benefiting from the variety of perks that membership provides, check out our membership options! Membership fees start at just $5/month and are tax-deductible.
Please consider making a charitable and a tax-deductible donation to The Poetry Society of New York. Non-cash donations, including physical property and experience packages, are also accepted and can also make for wonderful auction items at our Gala or production materials for our events.

Keep in mind that many companies match charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies also match a certain dollar amount per hour when their employees volunteer at charitable events. Check with your company’s HR department to find out if your employer might be one of these philanthropic organizations!
