One Day, Eighty Donors, $80K


All our thanks to the writers, readers, and book lovers who showed support for Sarabande Books during Give Local Louisville, a one-day-only, online philanthropy event. Together you gave over $80,000 to insure that we can continue our work of publishing emerging writers and innovative, groundbreaking projects.

We are overwhelmed with gratitude for your generosity. Our biggest and best are still ahead. We can't wait to share what we're planning: our upcoming titles, projects, and partnerships. Now, more than ever, we depend on the support of donors who believe in our mission. 


Give Local Louisville was a one-day-only event. Look what we accomplished together in just twenty-four hours!

  • Sarabande donors gave over $80,000!
  • Sarabande placed fourth out of three-hundred sixty-two Louisville nonprofits in total dollars raised!
