#GivingTuesdayNow | May 5, 2020

YOU can help our students SPEAK UP and find their voice?

Your gift will help to bring Speak Up and other crucial Book Fair programs online so children can continue to grow as readers and writers in our community. By funding the digital production of this and other Miami Book Fair programs, you’ll be giving children we serve the gift of creative writing and freedom of expression at the most crucial time.

We SPEAK UP today

To let you know that we need your help now, during this critical and unprecedented time, to keep children connected to the power of reading and writing and help keep our community connected to books, literature, and each other.


$50 helps one student follow their writing dreams by participating in SPEAK UP (spoken word program).

$100 funds the hiring of one local guest instructor for a Speak Up session online.

$250 funds a special Speak Up session led by a nationally recognized guest speaker.

While we are presently physically apart,

the Miami Book Fair continues to keep us socially and culturally connected, as we’ve done for almost four decades. Thanks to your support, we can continue to create community, one reader at a time, until we can gather together again, whether at the Book Fair in November or during one of our other year- round events.

Thanks to the generous support of the Green Family Foundation,
all donations made on #GivingTuesdayNow will be matched, dollar per dollar, up to $5,000!
