The Seventh Wave has grown with the support of a global community of writers, artists, and thinkers.

We care deeply about the issues we select, and work tirelessly to ensure that new and disparate voices are represented, acknowledged, and celebrated. We are committed to paying each and every contributor, and to providing an advertisement-free experience to our digital publication.

For the first two years, we funded The Seventh Wave out-of-pocket. Before asking anyone for financial support, we felt it was important to grow by necessity. In our third year, we ran our first-ever fundraising campaign, and were humbled by the support of our communities near and far: in three short weeks, we raised over $3,000, which enabled us to expand our annual residency program, increase our editorial services, and beta-test an innovative education curriculum that equips high school students with the tools to investigate their relationship to the social issues around them.

As we continue to curate online and offline conversations tailored to the most pressing social issues of our times, we would be humbled by your support. If you are able to make a contribution, you can use the PayPal button above and to the right. But really, we accept all forms of support: sharing our articles with your networks, introducing us to emerging artists and writers, helping us find venues for upcoming roundtable discussions and issue launches, giving us a social media shout-out, or even long-distance high-fives.

The Seventh Wave is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible. You’ll receive a donation receipt within a week of your contribution. Every little bit goes a long way. Thank you endlessly for your support.
