New Youth Endowment

Starting with funds generously received from the Tim Curry Memorial, 

Tim Curry
Youth Program Endowment was begun with the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend. This Fund will permanently provide annual support for youth writing programs such as the Young Emerging Writers Summer Internship Program that Tim developed and implemented in 2006. The objective of the Fund is to eventually support all of MWC’s youth writing programs to ensure that future generations of youth can be encouraged to write and develop their creative talents.

Please consider supporting Tim’s dream and life’s work of encouraging young writers by supporting the Midwest Writing Center’s Endowment for Youth Writing Programs. Contributions to the Fund may be made by sending a check, payable to the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend, to:
