Help Support SWW

SouthWest Writers is proud to serve writers in our community through classes, workshops, conferences, and monthly meetings, as well as an annual contest and a monthly newsletter.

We’re a volunteer organization, grateful for donations from supporters who share our love of writing and reading. Here are several ways to help SouthWest Writers:


Your donation to SWW (a nonprofit, tax exempt 501 (c)(3) organization) is a tax-deductible gift that benefits writers.

Ways to give:
– Earmark a donation for a specific cause such as the scholarship fund (enable a writer who may not otherwise afford membership), or the Bob Gassaway Student Writer Grant (give a boost to a motivated high school or college student who would like to become a member).
– Leave a bequest or instructions for friends and loved ones to remember SWW in lieu of flowers.
– Donate to celebrate birthdays, holidays, or for no reason at all.

Donations are accepted through the SWW office (3200 Carlisle Blvd NE, Suite 114, Albuquerque, NM 87110), or scroll down and use the online donation form at the bottom of this page. You can also click on the PayPal link below.


SouthWest Writers could not exist without its wonderful volunteers. To find out how to donate your time to an organization dedicated to helping writers succeed, contact the SWW office at See our Call for Volunteers for areas that are most in need of help.
