Support the Thoreau Prize Endowment

The Thoreau Prize for Excellence in Nature Writing is an award granted annually to an accomplished writer in English who embodies the spirit of Thoreau as a gifted writer, insightful naturalist, and ethical thinker. While the award has been conferred on such figures as Jane Goodall and Mary Oliver for lifetime achievement, it may also recognize mid-career nature writers who have demonstrated exceptional promise in any genre of nature writing (poetry, fiction, or nonfiction). The award consists of $2,500 and a commemorative gift.
Join the Thoreau Prize Endowment Donor Circle
All gifts will be matched 2 for 1 by a generous donor until we reach our goal of a $250,000 endowment. For example, a $100 gift will become a $300 gift.
