What does being a Friend mean?
Being a Friend of the Mesa Book Festival means that you care about the literary arts, and want to make sure that there will always be an organization that works to promote and expand their appreciation in Mesa.
You understand the power literacy plays not just in helping individuals be more successful in life, but in helping Mesa be more successful in an ongoing, sustainable way.
Being a Friend of Mesa Book Festival is providing a monthly donation to Anthology, Inc. to use for that purpose.
How is my support used?
The money is used to organize, promote, execute and grow the Mesa Book Festival. Your support makes sure that the event has a strong and healthy support base to continue to improve and celebrate the literary arts in Mesa.
Can my Friendship be anonymous?
Yes. Just select "anonymous" as the recognition option.
"I mean, I do like a little recognition…"
Of course… Our Friends that reach one year of friendship (and are OK being recognized) are listed on the Mesa Book Festival site each year during the month of the event, and those Friends of the longest tenure also get a shout out at events.
Is there a minimum length of time to my gift?
None at all. It is your gift to give, and we respect your choice to give for as long as you can. You can activate or deactivate your gift right here from Anthology.org.
If my Friendship Gift Tax deductible?
Your Friendship gift is a monthly donation to Anthology.org, and Federally recognized 501c3 organization and Arizona non-profit. Our Tax ID # is 86-1023292. So, while we qualify as an organization that one can give tax deductible donations to, we are a group of poets and writers, you may not want us doing you taxes or giving you direction. Check with your tax guy.
