The Academy of American Poets makes thousands of resources available free of charge to millions of readers each year.

Through National Poetry Month celebrations and the Education Program, tens of thousands of classrooms will gain a deeper understanding of the art form.

Your gift today makes this important work possible:

  • Connecting students across the country with real poets through the Dear Poet Project
  • Engaging teachers with easily-accessible poems, lesson plans, and multimedia resources all year with the Teach This Poem newsletter
  • Proliferating poetry throughout schools, libraries, and our greater communities during Poem in your Pocket Day

...and so much more. Thank you for helping the Academy of American Poets celebrate poets and poetry.
