Become a Kelly Writers House Friend

Would you like to help us protect, sustain and enhance the real achievement of the Kelly Writers House project?

It's easy to make a gift online. You can also give us a call at 215-573-9748, or contact Andrew Beal, our Associate Director for Development and Finance, at

If you prefer to donate by mail, you can download a fillable form to print at home, or print this page.

Upon receipt of your gift, we will immediately list you as among our founding "Friends." In the fall, we will send you a copy of the Writers House Annual, acknowledging your gift in print and presenting a sample of the year's literary achievements. If you wish to be anonymous, that's fine; you can also request that we publish your gift in dedication to or in memory of others.

During our endowment campaign (from now through May 2026), we ask you to consider doubling your gift to support the Possibility Fund as well.
