Holiday Fundraising Drive

Holiday Fundraising Drive

Welcome to Trop’s holiday fundraising drive! We hope that this holiday season, you’ll consider making a tax-deductible donation to LA’s largest and fastest growing venue for creative writing. Trop is a nonprofit publication under the watch of the Pasadena Arts Council, and it depends on support from its readers to keep on publishing.
Your donations will:
  • Help us pay our writers, designers, and visual artists. Over a third of our budget goes straight to our contributors, unlike print publications with massive overhead.
  • Help us build a literary community in Los Angeles. We publish 400 pieces of writing per year. That’s 400 opportunities for our writers to cook up ideas, edit each other, and build the bonds that tie together this city’s voices.

In return, we offer:

  • Official Trop t-shirts for donations over fifty dollars.
  • Copies of the first Trop best-of anthology (to be mailed in February when it’s released) along with Trop t-shirts for donations over a hundred dollars.
  • The satisfaction of supporting a burgeoning independent publishing outfit in Los Angeles.

To donate, please make checks payable to the Pasadena Arts Council and mail them to the address below, or click on the link to support Trop via PayPal.
