In addition to continuing support from the estate of Barbara Deming, the Fund relies on general donations from those interested in sustaining women writers and artists. This past year over fifty percent of our donors were former grantees. For more information on why your donation matters, go here.

We learn best to listen to our own voices if we are listening at the same time to other women - whose stories, for all our differences, turn out, if we listen well, to be our stories also. -- Barbara Deming
