Archive Content

The Thanks-Giving Foundation and its committees, panels, and initiatives have conducted research around the topic of celebrating humanity’s oneness in expressing gratitude to God.  Much of this research has been published to tell the story of the healing and uniting power of thanksgiving. Scholars, volunteers, and faith leaders working with The Thanks-Giving Foundation have historically gathered the creations and traditions of thanksgiving from cultures of every continent to inspire individual acts and expressions of thanksgiving.

The video and audio collection contains items dating back to the founding of The Thanks-Giving Foundation, including recordings from events, speaking engagements, and special presentations.


The archives and collections are not available for on-site research at this time. Please contact our office for any special inquiries. Many photographs, films, and literature pieces are being digitized for improved access.
