Donate

We invite you to join Brick’s beloved throng of donors during our year-end fundraising drive. Donations of $250 or more will garner you a signed copy of a book by one of our editors. Monthly donations will get you a free copy of our new issue, Brick 102 (or a one-issue extension to your existing subscription). And all donations will garner our profuse and eternal thanks. Support what sustains you. Give to Brick today.

To bring readers around the world the widest and most galvanizing exploration of the arts possible, Brick relies on the generous support of individual donors.

Join the stalwart donors on our Brick Wall by selecting a donation amount from one of the tiers below or giving any amount here. Or become a Monthly Sustainer and help provide much needed ongoing support to the magazine Annie Proulx calls “the best literary publication in North America.”

(Please note that because Brick does not have charitable status, we are unable to issue tax receipts.)

Brick is on its own, a constantly surprising and exciting gathering of literary and visual talents from every direction. I know of no more vital and original literary journal anywhere.

— W. S. Merwin

Brick has been publishing vibrant, invigorating, passionate writing since 1977, and with your help, we can keep at it for years to come.

Subscription sales and other earned revenue cover only 25% of our annual budget; along with the crucial support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council, your donations make it possible for us to publish the very best writing on culture, literature, and the arts, year after year, and send beautiful new issues of Brick to readers around the world. Donations directly support the creation of Brick, helping cover writers’ and artists’ fees, design and editorial work, printing and mailing costs, and operational expenses.

Your contribution will make a meaningful difference for Brick, and we’re profoundly grateful for your help.
