Carnegie Mellon University supports the YA Lecture Series though its ProSEED_Crosswalk grant, so the lectures can be free and open to the public. The Series is also sponsored by the CMU English Department and two student groups: AB Lectures and Partners in Speculative Fiction.

Parsec, Inc. is a local, 501c3, non-profit, literary organization celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Founded in 1965, SFWA is a non-profit organization composed of 1800 professional genre authors and is dedicated promoting literacy, supporting its members and presenting the annual Nebula Awards® to the finest science fiction and fantasy writers in the world.

The Pittsburgh Foundation included Parsec in its Annual PittsburghGives Day of Giving, matching some funds and encouraging individual donors to contribute to the YA Lecture Series.
