Help people write and share the stories that will change the world.

Your contribution helps GrubStreet remove barriers so that writers from 13 to 103 can develop their writing in an atmosphere of kindness, friendship, and creativity. Each day at GrubStreet, writers at every level grab hold of the power of sharing their stories. Then those stories spread beyond our classrooms and change the world. Thank you for your generosity. We’re happy to provide this update to you about just some of what we’ve been able to accomplish this year — together.

  • You helped provide over $170,000 in scholarship funds to writers in need in 2020 - and in 2021, you're helping us reach writers with $250,000 in scholarships.
  • Your support ensures that 80% of classes for teens are provided at no cost to participants and their families.
  • Your generosity helps GrubStreet provide free programming through our neighborhood-based program, Write Down the Street, and in Brookview House transitional housing shelter.
  • Your gift keeps classes and programs as affordable and accessible as possible so that more writers can participate. Tuition covers only 75% of the cost of GrubStreet’s classes, and your support helps make up the difference.
  • 100% of GrubStreet’s instructors are working artists from Boston and beyond. Your support helps provide a stable source of income for them to continue to serve our community of writers and readers.

GrubStreet supporters are also helping launch Boston’s new home for reading and writing on the waterfront. For more information about the new GrubStreet, visit our campaign page.
