The Mississippi Book Festival and its programming are made possible through the generosity of individuals, businesses, foundations, and partners. Funders help keep the annual event and non-festival activities FREE and open to the public. Benefactors help us: bring books to life for children in low-income schools, champion Mississippi’s public libraries, and connect authors and readers at events. We welcome your support through our fund at the Community Foundation for Mississippi, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization registered in the State of Mississippi.
