Support the Mission

Read650 supports and promotes writers through spoken word events that celebrate the craft of writing. We’re a 501(c)3 non-profit staffed largely by volunteers, and your investment helps bring performances to theaters, colleges, libraries, and other venues throughout the tri-state area—events that bring community together and inspire other writers. Whatever the amount, your tax-deductible contribution offsets our production costs and makes you a true patron of the arts. Thank you!


“When you support Read650, you foster human expression and connection. And, boy, do we need it now!”
