Donations of copies of each edition of the annual are made in the name of contributing poets to libraries throughout the county. Donations are completed each summer. Every college and university library receives the new annual. So do the San Diego County and City library systems, along with libraries from independent cities throughout the county, including Oceanside, Escondido, Carlsbad, National City and Chula Vista.
Copies are also donated to select public and university libraries nationally.
In addition, through the auctions of commemorative bottles of wine bearing the cover art for the annual, funds are distributed to venues hosting our celebratory readings.
Donations to the San Diego Poetry Annual can be made through a local arts non-profit, the San Diego Entertainment & Arts Guild (SDEAG) by credit card via PayPal on its website — www.sdeag.org or by clicking on the following link:
