In 2000, the Worcester County Poetry Association established its first endowment with the Greater Worcester Community Foundation to ensure a reliable, enduring source of income supporting specific programs. Since then, a total of six endowments have been established.
The Founders' Fund
The Worcester Review Endowment Fund
The Gregory Stockmal Reading Fund
The Stanley Kunitz Award Fund
The Elizabeth Bishop / Etheridge Knight College Contest Fund
The Dan Lewis Memorial Poetry Fellowship Fund
These funds are currently accepting donations. Annual income from these funds supports the programming and publications of the Worcester County Poetry Association. Donations can be made through the WCPA (via PO Box 804, Worcester, MA 01613) or directly with the Greater Worcester Community Foundation (370 Main Street, Suite 650, Worcester, MA 01608-1738).
