Make a Difference
As a nonprofit museum offering free admission, Planet Word could not exist without the generosity of its friends and supporters — people like you, who believe that words matter.
The exacting demands of today’s world require increasingly advanced reading and writing skills. Daily, we are called upon to make informed decisions about complex issues that affect us as all. But in the U.S., literacy trends are moving in the wrong direction. More than half of Americans between the ages of 16 and 74 read below the equivalent of a sixth-grade level.
Planet Word addresses this gap by serving a broad, diverse community of word and language lovers. Through playful and unexpected exhibits, on-site and digital programming, classes and workshops, and special events, we are creating a more informed, aware, and interconnected world.
Donors provide critical support for the museum.
With your gift, we will:
Whether you are a member of our Word Association, a Corporate Member, a major individual donor, or simply a lover of words and language who wants to support Planet Word, we invite you to be part of our growing family of donors!
