Today, the academy fulfills the first portion of its original mission ("to support american poets at all stages of their careers") by administering seven major awards-from a first-book prize through a lifetime-achievement award-and nearly 200 college prizes at schools across the country. To fulfill the second half our mission ("to foster the appreciation of contemporary poetry"), the academy administers several programs: poets. Org, the award-winning website which was launched in 1997 and now receives one million unique visitors each month; national poetry month (april), established by the academy in 1996 and now the largest literary celebration in the world; the online poetry classroom, an online resource providing free poetry lesson plans and other tools for teachers; the poetry audio archive, a collection of nearly 500 recordings dating back to the 1960s; and american poet, our biannual literary journal and magazine for members.

We provide an online donation platform whereby donors can locate and donate to all US based 501(c)(3) organizations through Generous Charitable Inc. (“GCI”), a donor-advised fund that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. GCI sends all funds donated (minus a small processing fee) to the organizations to whom funds were designated by donors using the Generous platform. (See our Terms of Service for more information) GCI is independent from Generous and maintains a separate board of directors; GCI works closely with Generous in connection with distribution of funds in a low-cost and effective manner to one or more nonprofits and charitable organizations identified on our Site (collectively, “Charitable Causes”).
