Making a donation will take you to a secure donation form and away from our website! Don't forget to go back and finish any book browsing you may have begun.

Donate to McSweeney’s today. Sizes available include: large, small, ridiculously large, colossal, and choose-your-own-amount. Want to make a donation in someone else’s name? We’ll email you an official (and printable) pdf certificate to pass along!

McSweeney’s publishes boldly. Our books and magazines—elegantly designed, startlingly original—are like nothing else. As a nonprofit, our work is not commercially-motivated. In fact, our beautiful books and magazines and the unmatched opportunities we offer readers, writers, and artists, are only possible because of donations from our readers and friends. Sales comprise about 80% of our budget, and contributions are the rest.

In this precarious time for independent publishing, we thank you for being an essential part of what we do, and we ask you to make a gift today.

Your support means everything to us.


Donations may be made as a single payment, or in 12 annual installments. To donate stock or other assets, please email Executive Director Amanda Uhle:
