      For 15 years City of Asylum has been protecting, celebrating, and building on creative free expression. 


      We protect by providing sanctuary to endangered literary writers, so they can continue to write. We celebrate by presenting free, globally-focused literary and performing arts programs. We build and inclusive community that is a model for the world.


      City of Asylum is now the largest writer sanctuary program in the world. And we are also presenting one of the largest calendars of cultural events in Pittsburgh - over 170 events in 2019 - all free to the community.


      Please help make our work possible by making a donation today.


      As a grassroots organization, we depend on the support of individuals like you. Your generous contributions help City of Asylum to meet its commitments to exiled writers.  They also help us keep our program of events free, so that everyone has equal access to great cultural programming.


      Here are a few ways to support City of Asylum during our fifteenth year:


      • Donate $15 one time: We have a goal of reaching 1,000 new donors, each donations $15. If you are not already a donor, this is an easy way to become one.
      • Pledge $15 a month. Help us reach our goal of 100 monthly donors, each pledging $15/month
      • Pledge a recurring annual gift. As we work to build a sustainable organization, long term commitments allow us to plan for the future.
