Help us increase public access to the literary arts

In 2003, following a long legacy of generous giving to education, healthcare, medical research, arts and culture, and programs for children and older adults, the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing was established with a gift from the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust.

Since then, we’ve strived to fulfill Virginia’s vision with humility, judgment, and heart. Arts and culture has a value beyond enjoyment or self-expression; they develop relationships, foster compassion and understanding, and bring society together as a whole. 

By donating to the Center, you help us create scholarships for students, educators, and community members, develop new programs, and better serve our community.
