The Boston Poetry Marathon 2021 Fundraiser

This year we will be fundraising for organizations that fight against racial injustice, in support of Black Lives Matter and the AAPI community/ #StopAsianHate movement. Learn more about the the three local organizations we are fundraising for below. 

We raised close to $2000 last year, so we are increasing our goal to $2200 for these crucial organizations. To contribute to the fundraiser, please go to our Go Fund Me page:

Any amount is welcome, from $5 to $500 (or more!). As you know, the Boston Poetry Marathon is an all-volunteer effort. Please show your appreciation for the work that goes into putting on this event by helping us raise funds for these great local organizations.
