Memberships showcase your belief in our mission, but dues just cover the cost of member services. Donations fund our good work. Please consider making a gift or pledge to SFA. Of any amount. It all counts. If you are able, we hope you will consider joining our annual leadership giving society, Order of the Okra, with a $1,000, $2,500, or $5,000 year-end gift.

Donations are used to

  • Record oral histories
  • Produce films and podcasts
  • Commission art and performances
  • Publish original writing
  • Fund new initiatives, including our digital archive
  • Support academic scholarship
