The Hurston/Wright Foundation is the only organization in the nation that provides culturally sensitive services and guidance for Black writers at every stage of their development. Historically, the African American community has lacked viable institutions dedicated to supporting creative writing either as an artistic expression or a professional endeavor.
No educational institution, professional organization or existing non-profit has responded to this need as comprehensively as the Hurston/Wright Foundation.
More than 90 percent of the Hurston/Wright Foundation’s income is contributed by corporations, foundations and generous individuals. The balance is supported by membership fees, publications and special events. To become a sponsor email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-248-5051.
