Guidelines

Donors may choose to send their books to a program based on location, mission, or subjects requested.  The geographic index will help locate the need in a particular area of the world, or scroll down to find a list of organizations indexed by subject. 

Contact the institution or program in advance to make sure that materials are still being accepted and that what you have is what they need. Sending inappropriate materials is more harmful than sending none.

Plan your shipment by first sorting, weeding, and discarding inappropriate materials, including books that may be moldy or damaged. The most cost effective method of shipping overseas is to use the USPS M-bag service. Note that military APO address costs are the same as domestic U.S. mailing regardless of location.

Find Organizations By Region
