CLMP to Award Capacity-Building Grants to 43 Nonprofit Magazines and Presses

The Community of Literary Magazines & Presses (CLMP) has announced that it will award capacity-building grants to forty-three independent nonprofit literary magazines and presses. The recipients will each receive two-year grants of $2,500–$25,000 per year, or $5,000–$50,000 total, to support capacity-building initiatives.

Through its Capacity-Building Grant Program, CLMP will support grantees’ projects in areas such as fundraising, finance, marketing, publicity, distribution, and website development; skill-building opportunities for staff or board members; diversity and equity initiatives; leadership development and management training; strategic planning; and succession planning. A grant from the Hawthornden Foundation, originally founded in 1983 by the late Drue Heinz, makes this program possible.
