Why do you charge money for Campbell’s work?
The Joseph Campbell Foundation was founded in 1990 by Jean Erdman, Joseph Campbell’s wife and literary executor, for the sole purpose of ensuring that Joseph Campbell’s work was available in perpetuity.
Over the last thirty years, JCF associates have spent thousands of hours digitizing lectures, building and moderating online community, and editing new book editions (including translations) for readers the world over. When you make a donation on our website – that’s right, your purchases are tax-exempt! – to gain access to a lecture, an ebook, or some other piece of Campbell’s work, you’re funding the mission of JCF: To keep Campbell’s work accessible for generations to come. We thank you for your continued support.
