We appreciate the thousands of people who have supported our project since we were born in the early 1970s – each and every one of whom has contributed to our existence today, whether with money or supplies or labor!

We also want to recognize that some people have gone above and beyond. In the same vein as our (sporadic) “Volunteer of the Month” articles, we’d like to recognize financial donors who have given more than the norm to keep our project alive!
Listed below are notable donors who have contributed to our project over the years. Everyone here has given $200 or more to our program!

Our organization is almost entirely funded by personal donation, so these amounts are deeply significant to us! $200 pays for the postage involved in sending out 50-60ish packages – a little bit less than ~0.7% of our yearly postage costs – or well over a month’s worth of wrapping paper and mailing supplies. $1000 pays about 1/30th of our yearly postage costs, or 3/4ths of the monthly rent for our office/library space!

This is an opt-in honor – all names and any photos are shared only upon request (barring some public figures who have already okayed their donation being known.) To be added to this page if you’ve made significant donations to us in the past, please email us at BooksToPrisoners@live.com. (And if you haven’t reached the donation threshold needed to be added here, consider visiting our donation page!)
