The Skagit River Poetry Foundation has received its 501(c)3 approval from the IRS. This means we are now an official non-profit, and that all donations (see the donation button on the website) are tax-deductible. Your dollars will help us put top poets into classrooms, and ensure that tens of thousands of schoolchildren discover this literary art form and find new ways to express themselves. You’ll also be helping us build a fabulous Skagit River Poetry Festival for May 15-18, 2014. We will be announcing our stellar lineup in October.
