Charity of the week
Founded in 1974, Graywolf Press (graywolfpress.org) is an independent publisher dedicated to giving underrepresented authors a platform to publish their work. It presents readers with invigorating works of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction literature that find new ways to tell stories, and gives voice to North American and international writers. Works from the likes of poets Claudia Rankine and Tracy K. Smith have been published by Graywolf, and authors have gone on to receive Pulitzer and Man Booker prizes. As one of the leaders in nonprofit publishing, Graywolf Press has been given the Association of Writers and Writing Program’s Small Press Publisher Award in recognition of the charity’s important role in elevating new authors to national attention.
Each charity we feature has earned a four-star overall rating from Charity Navigator, which rates not-for-profit organizations on the strength of their finances, their governance practices, and the transparency of their operations. Four stars is the group’s highest rating. ■
