donate

Donations are what help keep Books for a Better World alive. Here are the different ways that your donation can be used:
  • Support Our Book Fund: The average book costs $5.00, including international shipping and customs fees. Individuals can decide how many books they would like to contribute. We are able to buy in volume providing us with excellent discounts.
  • Ken Whelan Memorial Book Fund: For the summer of 2016, friends and family of Ken Whelan are donating Books for a Better World sites with copies of ¡Gol! Un gran equipo. Learn more about Ken here. If you would like to donate in Ken's name, please end your donation in $0.02 to honor his two children.
  • Chuck Gartell Memorial Book Fund: Chuck was a longtime supporter of Books for a Better World. His wife, Alice, is our book coordinator and past president. His daughter, Kira, is our current board president. Please consider donating in Chuck's name, and ending your donation in $0.47 to honor the forty-seven beautiful years that Chuck and Alice had together.
  • Adopt-A- Library: For $350 you can sponsor an entire library and help bring the love of reading to a community of children. And you’ll be able to see pictures and read stories about the library you adopt through our Library Blog.
  • Adopt-A-Book Program: For $1,000 you can give one book title to all Books for a Better World libraries.
  • Sponsor a Country: $7,500 helps support our efforts in each country we currently serve.

We are so grateful for your generosity in donating to Books for a Better World. 

We have a couple of different ways that you can donate to our organization. You can choose a one-time payment, which would be good if you plan to adopt a library, adopt a book, or sponsor a country. 

However, please consider making your donation an ongoing one--the price of a cup of coffee is about equal to the cost of a book that could go to a deserving child and help establish a lifelong love of learning and reading. This small monthly payment on your part has the power to change a young child's life for the better; literacy opens up a world of opportunities that would otherwise be unattainable.
