Get more involved
Composition books, pencils, and notebook paper are always in demand. Other supplies are often needed as well. Contact us for a list of supply needs.
Donate books | The Change
The Change book pipeline (named by one of Underground Writing’s first students) helps our students have access to good literature. The Change serves our five sites, as well as Green Hill Academic School Library (Juvenile Prison in Chehalis, WA). If you would like to donate to a particular site, please contact us for a list of book needs.
Thanks to Easton’s Books (Mount Vernon), Red Door Thrift Shoppe (Anacortes, WA), Open Books (Seattle, WA), and Pam and James Hoyle for your founding donations.

Become a Patron.
Our Patrons are a beautiful group of sustaining donors who give monthly or annually to Underground Writing because they believe that writing has the power to change lives.
Our Patrons give for many reasons. Haley’s a donor who lives in Nashville, Tennessee. She became a monthly donor in 2018, and told us recently, “I think one of the biggest reasons that I support the work of Underground Writing is because I am working daily with adults that have no healthy coping mechanisms to process their trauma and that struggle to find the space needed in order to do so. I believe that the work of Underground Writing and the tools that they offer to the students will be key in their students’ healing process . . . Small but consistent giving can be such an uplifting gift, both financially and as an encouragement that people believe in what you’re doing.”
