The Holbrooke Society of the
Dayton Literary Peace Prize Foundation

An Annual Giving Society

The purpose of The Holbrooke Society of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize Foundation is to contribute to the long-term sustainability of the DLPP and to foster growth of new initiatives and programs that spread peace internationally through the written word. This involves the financial support of individuals most committed to being advocates of the mission of the DLPP. Members making an annual gift of $5,000 and above will receive a number of exclusive benefits offered only to our most generous supporters.

Since the DLPP’s inception as the only international literary peace prize in the United States 13 years ago, we have had award winning books set in 53 different countries, 65 award-winning authors representing 19 countries around the globe, more than 23,000 students actively engaged with the prize and 16 Ohio colleges and universities offering programming associated with DLPP. As an organization and community, we have accomplished much and know with the introduction of The Holbrooke Society that the DLPP will extend its reach and secure its future.
