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 The Givens Foundation activities is provided by Givens Foundation individual donors, The Edward J. Phillips Family Foundation, Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, Target Foundation. This activity is made possible by voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
