Your donation makes a direct difference.

As an all-volunteer nonprofit, we rely entirely on our dedicated supporters to provide

  • Money to pay for postage, power, machines, and materials
  • People to get things done
  • Books, of course!

All donations go directly towards supporting our programs, and are also tax-deductible.

We are grateful to the individuals, groups, organizations and foundations that have given all the above to make our work possible. We are especially thankful to our incarcerated donors, whose hard-won cash and stamp donations make what we do worth it.
