Endowment to partially support a full-time librarian for expanded humanities services and programming in the new permanent home for Poets House.

Poets House plans to augment its existing $225,000 endowment with $500,000 in new endowment funds over the next five years. Income from the Poets House endowment will help fund the salaries of additional humanities (library and programming) staff who will be hired during the first years of operations in the new permanent home for Poets House, which is now under construction in Lower Manhattan. In its larger space in a new location, Poets House will increase access to its collections and expand its services, reach a broader audience and enhance the scope of its humanities programming. Endowment building has been planned by Poets House as an integral part of its "Campaign for Poets House" to secure all necessary funds for construction, working capital reserves, and long-term endowment.
