We rely on the Heyday community to help bring our mission to life on a daily basis. The work we do takes the collective effort of so many writers, artists, editors, designers, printers, bookstores, cultural partners, and book lovers everywhere.

Book sales make up nearly 75% of our revenue. The remaining 25%—from supporters like you—enables us to publish books that are culturally significant, even if less conventionally commercial. Because of your support, we dedicate ourselves to projects we can all be proud of, ones that have long-lasting impact.

Chip in by making a tax-deductible gift or becoming a member today, and you can be confident that your participation is directly supporting the people and ideas at the core of Heyday’s work.
