Donate to Poets House


We are thrilled to welcome renowned poet Cornelius Eady as Interim Director!

With Eady at its helm, Poets House is taking action to embrace transition and opportunity:

• Launching a listening campaign and a DEIA and strategic planning process
Working to expand library services through new digital initiatives
• Rebuilding the north end of the space after flood damage
• Ensuring a sustainable future

While much of the building repair will be covered by insurance, we still need your help to achieve all that we aim to do in the coming months.

The Poets House library will reopen in 2022.

We can’t do it without your support!

Every contribution, large or small, makes a difference.
Your donation is 100% tax-deductible.
