The 2017 Southwest Festival of the Written Word takes place on Friday- Sunday, September 29-October 1. As always, the Festival is open and free of charge to the public. This means that we must fund the Festival through grants and donations. As part of this effort, we are participating in “Give Grandly!”, our community’s annual day of giving, on Saturday, May 6.
On May 6, your Give Grandly! contributions will trigger matching funds that will help us continue our planning for the 2017 Festival. Our Give Grandly goal this year is $2,000.
There are several ways you can make your donation on May 6:
- Go to GiveGrandly.org and select Southwest Festival of the Written Word from the drop-down list for Grant County. Fill out the form and submit your donation.
- Text GRANDLY to 41444 from your cell phone.You will receive a text back that will provide the link to click on to complete your donation to the Southwest Festival of the Written Word.
- Visit our table at the Silver City Farmers’ Market on 7th Street and Bullard, from 8:30am – 2:30pm, where you can donate by credit card, check, or with cash.
From all of us who volunteer for the Southwest Festival of the Written Word: thank you!
