The Big Give 2023
September 20 - September 21
Big Give 2023 will return for our 10th anniversary of fundraising success on Wednesday, September 20 at 6 PM thru Thursday, September 21, at 6 PM.
This year, all donations from The Big Give are in support of the Cary Clack Scholarship Fund! Gemini Ink established the Cary Clack Scholarship Fund for emerging writers in honor of esteemed journalist Cary Clack, a beloved member of the Gemini Ink board. Cary Clack was born and raised in San Antonio. Cary Clack is a journalist and editorial board member with the San Antonio Express-News where he was the first Black metro desk journalist. He has covered local and national news, events, and social issues for three decades. He is the author of Clowns and Rats Scare Me and More Finish Lines to Cross. In 2017, he was inducted into the Texas Institute of Letters.
$5,000 in scholarships will help 40 San Antonians bring their stories to life by allowing them to take our Public Writing Classes for free, and with your support, we can make this happen! Plus, incredible news: This year, we have a $2,500 match from Nancy T. Shivers, doubling the impact of your donations. Help us reach our $5,000 goal and support the Gemini Ink Cary Clack Scholarship Fund, enabling emerging writers in our city to bring their stories to life.
Gemini Ink’s mission is to teach the craft of writing to people of all skill levels so they can bring their stories to life. As San Antonio’s Writing Arts Center, we provide a supportive home for readers and writers of all levels through our online and in-person workshops and literary community. We believe everyone has a story and writing that story is powerful. Our strategic vision is to teach 12,000 people how to bring their stories to life by 2024.
Anyone can apply to the Cary Clack Scholarship Fund. Learn more about our scholarships at https://geminiink.org/scholarships.
