Programs - overview
The Givens Foundation for African American Literature remains the only organization in Minnesota exclusively dedicated to advancing and celebrating black literature and writers. Each year, we serve nearly 5,000 students, educators, readers, and writers.
Major support for Givens Foundation activities is provided by The Givens Foundation individual donors, Target, The Edward J. Phillips Family Foundation, and the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
