There are so many ways to GIVE


Donate Funds

Consider your donation level

Choose your frequency

The Poetry Society of Virginia is a 501(c)3 organization, and monetary donations are tax-deductible. Gifts in kind are also tax-deductible with the Society's acknowledgment that a gift was given.

Give Your Time & Expertise

Supporting PSV financially is not the only way you can give. Our historical context at the 100-year mark brings critical needs into focus. We need event volunteers, program planners, mentors in classrooms and workshops, finance and accounting advice, funding strategists, marketing and social media coordinators, and regional leaders. Just ask us where to jump in.

Engage in Planned Giving

Consider leaving a lasting legacy through planned giving. Your planned gift can help ensure that your love for poetry continues to flourish through our next 100 years. By including Poetry Society of Virginia in your estate plans, you can make a significant and enduring contribution to our mission of cultivating Virginia's poetry.

Partipate in Employer Matching


According to Double the Donation statistics, 11% of total corporate cash contributions to nonprofits are made through matching gift programs, for an estimated average of $2.86 billion donated each year. 

But approximately $4–7 billion in matching gift funds go unclaimed per year!


This is an opportunity for us and for poetry. If your employer has a matching gift program, your one-time or recurring gift to Poetry Society of Virginia can be doubled. Once you donate money to PSV, simply reach out to your human resources department and initiate a matching gift request. 

Offer Gifts in Kind

Poetry Society of Virginia is deeply grateful to partners, sponsors, agencies, organizations and kind individuals who have shown up with in-kind gifts. They have selflessly supported programming, operations, and our community with donations like:

  • Food & beverages

  • Venue space

  • Event swag

  • Signage and printing

  • Marketing and design

  • Professional services

  • Supplies and equipment

  • Contest prizes

  • Travel and accommodations

In-kind gifts have sustained us over time and often come from members. These gifts supplement monetary donations and provide essential goods and services that might be otherwise inaccessible for us. Please consider supporting our operations and programs in this way.


Become a PSV Sponsor

We nurture creativity, advocate for poets, and promote poetry as a powerful means of connection and expression. For more than 100 years, PSV has fostered a love for poetry and supports poets of all ages and backgrounds. We are gearing up for our biggest event of the year: the Annual Festival.

Your sponsorship contributes to the success of the festival and other poetry initiatives, including workshops, readings, and educational outreach. With your help, we can reach more people, especially underserved communities, and continue inspiring a love for poetry.
