The mission of the Writers Emergency Assistance Fund (WEAF) is to help established freelance writers who, because of advanced age, illness, disability, a natural disaster, or an extraordinary professional crisis are unable to work. The support of ASJA members and others over the decades has enabled WEAF to assist hundreds of writers with small, but life-changing emergency grants.
To preserve this vital safety net for freelancers suffering hardship due to illness, disability, old age, or an extraordinary professional crisis, please make a donation of any amount.
The ASJA Charitable Trust is a registered 501 (c) (3) public charity; all donations are tax-deductible.
