Make a difference in the life of a child.

All it takes is $30 to provide a summer full of fun, enriching reading to a child. $600 sponsors an entire classroom. And we can do so much with any amount in between. Do you want to make your gift sustainable throughout the year? Become a monthly donor here!

thank-you picThrough community partners, we collect as many gently used children’s books as possible to use in our program and purchase the rest. Through partners like First Book, Scholastic, and Better World Books, we acquire books for as little as $0.35 to $3 a book. Your donations help us take advantage of those opportunities.

If you are donating as an individual, make sure to inquire with your employer about donation matching programs. Your business or place of employment may match charitable giving. Donating in honor of someone? Tell us who, and we’ll email you a printable certificate to present to them!

Thank you for giving! No matter the size, your contribution makes a difference in the life of a child. We hope you will join us at book distributions to see the magic of Books for Keeps for yourself. We’re changing lives by changing kids’ summers. One book at a time.
