The American Writers Museum Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Federal Tax ID Number 27-1822749). All donations made to the Foundation are fully tax deductible.
We are currently still moving toward meeting our $500,000 Founder’s Challenge, launched earlier this year. All donations will be matched on-to-one until we meet our goal.
Your support will help us accomplish our goal of creating a national museum to celebrate the lives and works of our nation’s preeminent writers. Please select an amount and use the “Donate” button to make a secure online contribution via PayPal. If you donate $100 dollars or more, we will list you as a Chapter One Patron.

For donations over $2,500 please use the AWM Donation Form

A national museum in Chicago exploring American writers and the power of their words would enormously enrich the city’s diverse museum landscape. Those of us whose main task it is to instill within the museum visitors an active and probing interest in nature and culture can only respond to the plans of a writers museum: This is the right thing to do!
