In "Exploring Our Values Through Poetry," a Tapestry of Faith program
One possible resource for projects in need of sponsors is DonorsChoose.org. Your group can pick a project based on a theme (such as poetry) and/or based on location; the project could benefit your community or your neighbors. Your congregation's social justice committee is another resource you can approach for ideas.
If participants decide to add a fundraising element to the Poetry Slam, make sure individuals assume responsibility for specific tasks. Use newsprint to create a list of the tasks involved, and include the name(s) of those who volunteer to complete each task. As you get closer to the date of the performance, especially if you are leading Workshops 11 and 12, remember to include updates on the planning efforts for the fundraiser as you plan other aspects of the Poetry Slam.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations.
