Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

National Endowment for the Humanities

From 2010 to 2012, Hymnary.org was supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities* (NEH) to expand and improve its online database of hymn texts and tunes. The grant money was used to incorporate the Dictionary of North American Hymnology into Hymnary.org, to improve tools for researchers and scholars, to enter and correct data, and to scan about 2,000 hymnals from the Princeton Theological Seminary library's Benson collection.

The project was given the "We the People" designation from NEH, which is awarded for projects that encourage and strengthen the teaching, study, and understanding of American history and culture. More information is available from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
