A one-time tax-deductible contribution to The Center for Fiction. To make a monthly contribution, please click here.

Donations to The Center for Fiction help us build a vibrant home for a diverse community of readers and writers to develop and share their love of storytelling.

Your support nurtures early-career writers with grants, workshops, a place to write, public readings, a literary community, and other services and awards through our Emerging Writer Fellowships and First Novel Prize; fosters creative expression for over 2,500 New York City public school children annually with author-led events, writing workshops, reading groups, creative writing contests, and their own books to keep through our KidsRead / KidsWrite Program; invigorates our award-winning 200-year-old library with new acquisitions; and brings hundreds of authors and artists to engage with audiences annually on timely cross-cultural issues through our Public Literary Events and Performances, which celebrate fiction in all its forms.

To provide sustained, reliable support to The Center on a recurring basis, please consider making a monthly contribution.

Individuals donating $1,000 or more are invited to join The Center for Fiction Founders Society, which provides opportunities for engagement, including discounts, personalized gifts, invitations, and more, drawing donors closer to The Center’s work and mission.
