Your donation sustains and grows this exceptional community of writers, artists, and readers.


"I don’t know what I’d do without poems — reading them, listening for them, turning them over in my mind like stones from the river.”
—Catherine Abbey Hodges, Issue 57: Mend


For fourteen years, Ruminate has nourished and inspired readers in their creative and contemplative lives. Our commitment to paying writers and artists for the work they do is at the core of our work. We rely on the support of every member of our community to publish these important voices.

With a monthly donation of even $5/month, you can invest in Ruminate’s long-term financial sustainability and become a partner in our strategic growth. Of course, if you’d prefer to make a one-time donation, we would be very grateful for that as well!

"For me, Ruminate’s support was an act of love that helped me more closely examine the kind of work that I hoped to continue making. This encouragement helped me solidify what I wanted—to make work that tells the stories of real people in such intimate ways that it causes the viewer to love them like I do, and even more importantly, like God does.
