Donate to the Foundation Fund

Our mission shall be to study American literature, to encourage high standards and to promote literary ideals among American writers. The Foundation Fund was created to pursue this goal through education, training and scholarships for students of writing.

Currently, FAW uses the Foundation Fund to grant a scholarship to one or more students pursuing advanced degrees in writing at universities in the Chicago area. We have awarded scholarships to students at National Louis University, Roosevelt University and Columbia College Chicago. These students are nominated by faculty and show outstanding promise and skills in their writing pursuits.

Foundation Fund gifts can be made in your own name or in memory of a friend. Gifts of one hundred dollars or more shall entitle the donor to be listed in the FAW yearbook as a Foundation Fund Contributor. You may give "in memory of" or "in honor of" a specific family member or friend, or opt to be listed anonymously. FAW is a 501(c)(3) organization.
