Make a #GivingTuesdayNow Donation to CityLit


Today is the important day!


May 5th has been designated as #GivingTuesdayNow, a Global Day of giving in response to the unparalleled needs caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and we need your help.


During these challenging times, CityLit Project is grateful for our vibrant literary community, in Baltimore and beyond. 


These days so many people feel helpless and isolated, but as lovers of literature, we know the power of writing – both as an important tool to express emotion and as a comforting vehicle to take us beyond the realities of the news.


If you are looking for a way to assist people and organizations that are helping to connect in good ways, support the work of CityLit, as the human story is more important than ever.



In the words of Carla Du Pree, our Executive Director …


“It’s not lost on us that in the throes of this global health crisis, we turn to the arts. It soothes us, reassures us, nurtures us, and reminds us of the fragility of this thing called life. We will resurface scarred but determined, emotionally battered but newly awakened… armed with a new way of being and creating.”



CityLit is here to navigate the implications of this difficult time and ensure a more creative and inclusive future for Baltimore and beyond!


Your generosity is vital to us now. We need your help.
Please donate to us today for Giving Tuesday Now!


Make your donation on this important day to support CityLit Project, and please consider a recurring, montyhly donation.






Thank You!

Our thoughts are with you for your writing, reading, safety, and good health!
