Loft Leadership Circle

Major Giving at the Loft

The Loft’s work is only possible thanks to the support we receive from our generous donors. We’re grateful to receive contributions at all levels, and we’re honored to show special recognition for those who give at the highest levels as a part of the Loft’s Leadership Circle.

By joining the Leadership Circle, you...

  • Offer scholarships for young writers
  • Bolster offerings that make our community more inclusive
  • Present events that highlight emerging and underrepresented voices
  • Produce programs that use literature to tackle complicated social issues

In acknowledgement of your major support, you receive:

  • Two tickets to an exclusive annual luncheon with a high-profile guest
  • Invitations to intimate gatherings and receptions throughout the year
  • Regular updates from the executive director on the latest from the Loft and the wider literary landscape
  • Behind-the-scenes updates from the managers of marquee Loft programs
  • Monthly reading recommendations from Loft staff and teaching artists
  • Special recognition on the Loft’s website and in our offices at Open Book
  • Signed copies of books from visiting authors to the Loft

To support the Loft’s work as part of the Leadership Circle, you can give a one-time annual gift of $1,200+ or make a recurring monthly gift of $100+.
