Annual Fund

Help BURNAWAY provide coverage and dialogue about the arts in Atlanta and the Southeast in our online and print publications, critic-in-residence program, and writing mentorship programs for students, artists, and emerging writers. We depend on the generous support of individuals like you!

This year’s Annual Fund goal of $10,000 is being matched by the Possible Futures Foundation. Every dollar you contribute counts double!

Are you already a memberThank you! We appreciate your support! If you would like to contribute more in support of our programs, the Annual Fund is a great way to do that! Membership and individual donations from people like you are an important part of the funding we rely on to produce our programs.

Donating to the Annual Fund increases our chances for funding in other areas! Many of our foundation, government, and corporate donors look to see how many individuals support us as members and give to the Annual Fund to determine how much the community values the work we do.

Wondering where some of your donation goes? Here are just a few examples:

$100 pays a writer for one article, $2500 pays for a whole month of content, and $30,000 just about covers a year. Over the year, we produce an average of 420 articles – our staff and interns produce around 120 pieces per year at no extra cost to BURNAWAY, which means that we can pay our freelancers more for the excellent work they do.

$25 takes care of snacks for one day of our High School Arts Writing Program with the Wren’s Nest and Hammonds House Museum. Let’s nurture the minds and bodies of our future critics! Overall, we subsidize $500 per student to attend this program, completely free of cost to them. Why not sponsor a student?

$125 is what it costs us to produce the To Do List each week. That includes a small stipend for our beloved Events Editor, Chanel Kim, and a little for our IT guys who keep the website page from going bonkers. Help us to help you navigate between a lecture at the High and a backyard dance performance all in one night!
