Support the Willa Cather Foundation

The Willa Cather Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to celebrating the work, life, and legacy of this great American writer. Through our scholarly endeavors, educational outreach, arts and humanities programs, and preservation of historical settings and archives, we serve as a vibrant memorial to the Pulitzer Prize-winning author.

Founded in 1955 and headquartered in Red Cloud, Nebraska—a small midwestern town that appears often in Cather's novels and stories—the Willa Cather Foundation plays a significant role in maintaining and providing access to the largest known collection of historically significant properties dedicated to a single American author.
