Donations to Authors in April

Thank you for considering a donation to support Authors in April. 

Authors in April is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Rochester, MI  and run entirely by volunteers. Our program is unique in the United States. The volunteer board has worked hard for the past 30-plus years to keep costs low so that local PTAs, both private and public, are able to afford this  program and we are able to bring top quality authors and illustrators to our schools.

It costs Authors in April approximately two thousand dollars per school to deliver our program to our schools. The Schools’ PTA cover a portion of the expense and Authors in April relies on individual and corporate donations for a third of our programming costs. The majority the dollars we spend each year go directly to support our mission of encouraging students to read as well as to appreciate a variety of literature while improving their own creative writing abilities.  

Our operating expenses are a very small percent of our resources and since Authors in April is run entirely by volunteers there are no salaries to pay. Your donation goes directly to bringing top quality authors and illustrators to your child’s school and your gift impacts approximately 10,000 students each year! Authors in April is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit.  Your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
