Thank you for visiting The Gonzo Foundation’s new website!

The Gonzo Foundation

The Gonzo Foundation is a non-profit organization created to promote literature, journalism and political activism through the legacy of Hunter S. Thompson. It was founded by his wife, Anita Thompson and is based at Owl Farm.

The Gonzo Foundation hosts political debates in conjunction with local Grassroots TV and after-school programs for area students. We contribute to University endowments to lighten the financial load of students going into the important profession of Journalism in a changing world. Although we are a small nonprofit, we are growing steadily with help from friends and those who loved the work of literature, journalism and the activism inspired by Hunter S. Thompson.

We look forward to your support and participation.
