As the flagship initiative of the Calvin Center for Faith & Writing, the Festival of Faith & Writing is made possible by the generosity of donors to the CCFW’s endowment, as well as partners and donors throughout campus and in our community. We are especially grateful for the support of individuals, publishers, foundations, and others who believe in the power of language. Together we create space for shared discovery, meaningful discussion, and celebration of the stories that shape our lives.
