Give Miami Day 2018
Because of you, on Thursday, November 15, 2018, Exchange for Change was able to generate almost $27,000. This is the amount you donated without including the partial match provided by the Miami Foundation. One hundred percent of your generosity will go towards programming, allowing us to fund a full semester’s worth of courses at all of the institutions where we teach. We literally could not do this without you. From the bottom of our hearts, and on behalf of our students, thank you.

Exchange for Change: Poems from Prisons
Thank you for helping to make Exchange for Change’s November 17, 2018 event at The Porch a complete success! Works in Spanish and English by our currently incarcerated students were performed by our guest speakers, and for the first time, we offered live readings from our literary magazine, Don’t Shake the Spoon. Audience feedback written in response to the performances has been delivered to our very grateful E4C writers, creating the exchange of words we value so deeply. We hope to return to the Miami Book Fair again next year, but in the meantime, thank you for your support, and if you missed it (or if you attended and can’t wait to hear more) please consider attending one of our graduations.
The Betsy Fundraiser
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to celebrate with us and make our first annual fundraiser at The Betsy such a huge success. Please stay tuned for more events!
