Since our founding in 2011, MPWW has grown into the largest and most enduring prison-based literary organization in the country. Our classes and other programs have had a real, demonstrable impact on the lives of thousands of incarcerated Minnesotans, an impact that has rippled out to their families, neighborhoods, and the community-at-large.
To ensure that we can continue this vital work, we need to raise $70,000 by the end of Give to the Max Day on November 16th. Can you help us reach our goal? You can donate via the link below or on our GiveMN page, where you can also track our progress.
Update: A generous, anonymous donor will match all donations made before the end of Give to the Max Day, dollar-for-dollar, up to a total of $5,000!
Donors giving $100 or more, or signing up for a monthly donation of any amount, will receive a copy of American Precariat: Parables of Exclusion, a first-of-its-kind anthology edited by a group of incarcerated writers. Publishers Weekly called it “a searing overview of how America’s financial and social systems fail ordinary people."
MPWW is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and every donation is fully tax-deductible. Thank you for your support!
