2024 Mid-Year Giving Campaign

Rooted in a 32 year legacy; relevant to the South’s evolving narrative.

Support the Oxford American—where Southern stories find their home.

For 32 years, the Oxford American has been digging into the South’s rich soil, unearthing stories that are as complex as they are vital. Our mission transcends the stereotypical. We’re here to capture the ineffable essence of the South–that undefinable Southern THANG–in all its messy, beautiful glory.

This summer, we're asking you to help us raise $20,000 to keep our presses rolling and our stories flowing. Your support means we can continue featuring emerging voices, shining light on untold narratives, and foster dialogue on the nuances that define our region.

A win for us AND a win for you!

We have curated a one-of-a-kind collection for all of your outdoor (or indoor and air-conditioned) summer adventures! Every $50 donation enters you one entry in the draw to win our Backyard Bliss Bundle, valued at $300!
