Making a difference in individual lives
Thanks to the generous support of donors and community partners, the Piper Center has been able to offer over 100 scholarships for teachers, veterans, students, and other community members to the Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers conference over the last three years.
Through these scholarships, writers receive the critical knowledge, training, and support necessary for their personal, professional, and artistic development. Their experiences show that creative writing and the literary arts have a value beyond simple enjoyment or self-expression. They develop relationships, reveal meaning, and foster compassion and understanding.
When you give to the Center, you become a part of someone else's story, nurturing their lives and creativity for years to come.
