As a not-for-profit organization BOA relies on support from government entities, private foundations, local and national businesses, and individuals to assist us in furthering our mission of fostering appreciation of contemporary literature and bringing high-quality literature to the public.

Thank you for giving to BOA Editions. Your belief in BOA as a valuable cultural asset allows us to continue to honor future generations of artists as they add their voices to a poetic chorus that is as old as humankind. We could not do what we do without you!
