Support What You Believe In

About the Project

Giving to Gulf Coast always makes a difference. With “The Power of the Arts” and your generous donation, Gulf Coast can bring dozens of poems, stories, and critical art content to thousands of readers in Houston and around the country. We are an entirely student-run journal with a staff of nearly 40 editors, readers, and interns. Your donation will help us meet the costs of publishing our upcoming issue due this April, and support our mission to publish an array of voices as diverse as the Gulf itself. When you get a copy of Gulf Coast next spring, you will know that you helped to bring art and literature of consequence to a grateful audience. 

PLEASE NOTE: Houston Arts Alliance will apply a maximum amount of $250 in matching dollars per gift for the first $10,000 received on November 28, 2017 to celebrate Day of Giving. The matching amounts will not appear on the system automatically, as HAA will manually add the matching funds. HAA will notify fundraisers of distribution of matching funds when the funds are no longer available.

With support from the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance, an additional $1.00 donation will be applied for every $1.00 gifted to this project. A total of $10,000 in matching support will be available, while supply lasts!
