Financial Contributions

Your Gifts Make a Real – and Lasting – Difference

We offer several easy ways for you to make a personal contribution to support our mission. We can assist with stock/equities gifts, personal property, IRA distributions, estate planning, and much more.

Options for Giving

A gift in any amount helps us provide free books and literacy enrichment opportunities for thousands of children and educators who most need support. View how your gift makes an impact (2023 Impact Report click here).

A $5 donation = One brand new book 


You can make a

one-time donation, or set up a monthly, recurring donation with a simple online form. No checks to write and mail, with the assurance your gift arrives every 30 days.


Company Matching Gifts​


Many employers offer their employees a chance to double their personal gifts with a company matching program. Your Human Resources staff can guide you and help initiate your gift. 


IRA’s, Equities, Estates


Our financial advisors

can quickly and efficiently facilitate gifts of stock, securities, property, IRA distributions, trusts, estates

and more with a minimum of stress-free paperwork. Tax-saving strategies and other financial considerations may

be applicable and can be

discussed prior to gifting.

Memorials and Tributes


Consider creating a lasting tribute to a loved one with a gift in their name. We can help design a certificate, plaque, or other keepsake honoring their legacy, suitable for gift-giving or celebrating one of life’s milestones. Naming rights and room sponsorship opportunities are other options for lasting gifts.
