Support Us


In this unprecedented time, we turn to poetry and its power to lift up our emotional and intellectual lives in a way nothing else can. 

Your support helps us to reach more young people across Canada, bringing them direct encounters with poets and poetry which would otherwise be unavailable. Your contribution will help secure a future for poetry that is relevant and meaningful in the lives of Canadians.


PIV/LVP welcomes all forms of support – from one time donations to long-term philanthropic patronage, monthly donations, and legacy giving.

Contact to discuss giving pathways and sponsorship opportunities linked to our various programs.

Thank you.


" Reciting poetry in high school gave me the confidence to speak up — and that confidence is still with me. "
— Khalil Mair, graduate of the University of Oxford and former student at Toronto French School, ON

“In our world so riddled with uncertainty and fear, PIV/LVP is giving young people ground to stand on, offering them the consolations, beauty, hope, and the tough insights that poetry has to offer. I can think of no better arts project worthy of support."
— Lorna Crozier, poet and Professor Emerita at the University of Victoria
