Part of Idaho Writers Guild's mission is to support literacy in the community. To show our support, IWG launched a fundraising program for Title 1 school libraries. Our first recipient was Grace Jordan Elementary School. We delivered $525 to the school librarian at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. Our next recipient, as nominated by the Grace Jordan librarian, will be Owyhee Elementary.
Title 1 schools are those with high percentages of children from low-income and disadvantaged families. Title 1 schools are in continual need of funds to maintain adequate libraries.
All donations are appreciated, including your spare change. Cash and checks are welcome. Please make checks out to IWG. All funds will be deposited into the IWG account until presentation of a check to the recipient school. Donations can be made at all IWG events or by mailing checks to:
