FRIENDS & PATRONS
Some years ago, a Circle of Friends and Patrons of German PEN was formed joining individuals and organizations from the cultural, political, and economic realms, who advocate the idea of International PEN and would like to support our Center and the work of our Writers in Prison Committee on behalf of imprisoned and threatened writers and journalists. Our Center depends on this very helpful and much appreciated support. Needless to say that the efforts of the Writers in Prison Committee require sizeable financial means. And yet, whatever we attempt in the way of assistance for our harassed colleagues, so much more remains to be done.
Annual contributions will be exclusively used in line with PEN’s charitable status and are tax-deductible. Membership in the Circle of Friends and Patrons of German PEN may be revoked at the end of each year.
