Become a Bestie.
Make a difference in the life of a child,

Become one of our Besties. Sign up as a monthly donor – a Best Friend for Keeps – and help us keep spreading the joy!


Want to give via ACH withdrawal directly from your bank account? Get in touch and we’ll help with the paperwork!

Why give monthly? If you give just $10 per month, you’ll sponsor four children across the course of the year. We’ll also send you a special pin enblazoned with the word BEST to cement your status as one of our Besties – one half of our heart. When you see our staff and board members out and about, look to see if they are wearing the FRIEND half of the heart!

When you give $30 a month, you will sponsor one child with each monthly donation – 12 children over the course of the year. You’ll also receive our special-edition Besties tote bag. This canvas tote has exterior pockets and features a quote from children’s book author Kate DiCamillo. It is available only to donors who give through our monthly program!

Your gift of $50 a month will sponsor an entire classroom over the course of a year. If you choose to double that gift to $100 per month, you’re allowing Books for Keeps to reach two brand new classrooms in the coming program year! We’re working on benefits at these levels, so if there’s something you’d like to see, send us an email and tell us!

By giving ANY gift monthly, no matter the amount, you are helping us reach students in need who may not otherwise own a single book. That’s an impact you can see. All year long. For the rest of a child’s life.

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.
