Why Your Gift Matters
Through my support of Just Buffalo Literary Center, I have witnessed first-hand the magic that the literary arts can provide. Just Buffalo is not only driven by its mission to ‘create and strengthen communities through the literary arts,’ but it also works to be a leader in the cultural community as a whole.
-Kevin O’Leary, past board president
You know the importance of the literary arts. They can inspire, instruct, entertain and enlighten. Your gift to Just Buffalo Literary Center makes a difference in the lives of individuals and for the entire community. Our educational programs, including Writing With Light (presented in collaboration with CEPA Gallery), bring the joy of self-expression through writing to Buffalo’s at-risk youth and inner-city schools, and reach young people throughout Western New York. Just Buffalo’s acclaimed Babel series brings internationally-renowned authors to an enthusiastic audience of readers, and in the process has become “one of the most exciting literary series that Buffalo has ever seen.”
Your gift matters. When joined with the gifts of others, it has a major impact. Combined with ticket sales, program fees, and Just Buffalo’s success at landing competitive federal, state and local grants, your gift makes this all possible. We depend on your help to fulfill our vision of a community that fully supports and values the love of reading, the art of writing, and the power of the literary arts to transform lives.
