The Peter Clark Legacy of Literacy Match
In memory of her father, Literary Society President Ellen Brown is providing a dollar-for-dollar matching gift up to $10,000. Please consider making a tribute gift in honor of someone who ignited your passion for reading while supporting the volunteer-driven operations and infrastructure that underpin our meaningful author events, enrich member experience, and sustain grantmaking.
Our generous members allowed us to grant $56,825 to nonprofit literacy programs in arizona last spring!
ABOUT THE LITERARY SOCIETY OF THE SOUTHWEST
Since its inception in 2005, the Literary Society of the Southwest has sparked unique connections with accomplished authors through member luncheons and engaging book discussions. The Literary Society shines as a premier membership forum for knowledge, appreciation and promotion of contemporary literature. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Literary Society promotes literacy and provides grants to community organizations with literacy missions.
Literary Society members can login to access members only content here.
We look forward to your attendance at the in-person luncheons and presentations.
"It's so nice to see the dedication and hard work of our volunteers, growing the Literary Society to a successful organization attracting great authors and giving to others! I have been in leadership roles for non-profits and know what it takes. I want my gift to go the distance."
- Linda Meece, Member
