SFWA’s board of directors is proud to announce the Givers Fund Grants for 2019.
$46,837 has been awarded to twenty-three organizations and programs. This is the largest amount yet, bringing our four-year total of grants awarded to $118,134.
Giver’s Fund grants are awarded to support programs that further SFWA’s mission, which is to promote, advance, and support science fiction and fantasy writing in the United States and elsewhere, by educating and informing the general public and supporting and empowering science fiction and fantasy writers.
Response to this year’s call for grant applications was extremely successful, with twenty-five qualified grant requests applying for a total of $80,754. SFWA thanks the Giver’s Fund Committee for their diligent work assessing and and evaluating each application.
