In the fall of 1999, The Word Works launched a fundraising campaign to support the commissioning of Karren Alenier's opera Gertrude Stein Invents A Jump Early On. The first fundraising letters were sent to individuals known to the poet and the organization. That effort continues in support of follow on productions. Individual who would like to support this ground-breaking project can send his or her tax-deductible check to:

The Word Works Stein Fund
P.O. Box 42164, Washington, DC 20015

Word Works tax ID number is 52-1042022. Ask us how to contribute to The Word Works through your annual United Way and CFC campaigns. The process is easy and just involves supplying United Way and CFC with our tax ID number and address.

Word Works continues the campaign to raise funds for the opera. If you have any contacts that Word Works could pursue, please contact us at: editor@wordworksdc.com.
