ways to give

The Reading People depends on the support of people like you. An independent and locally-funded nonprofit, all our services are delivered free of charge—because the last thing someone dealing with educational barriers needs is another expense. 

make a gift to support our mission

The Reading People depends on financial support from people like you. While all of our services are delivered free of charge to our students, there is a cost to offer them. Explore ways to give and help sustain our work.  

DONATE books

We give books donated to us from the community to children, families, schools, and other nonprofits. New and gently used books can be dropped off in our donation boxes at Schuler's in the Meridian Mall, at Erickson Hall on MSU Campus, or to us directly at our office. Please consider making a tax-deductible gift.

Shop our wish list

We are very grateful to the local individuals and businesses that provide ongoing support by donating supplies and services. 


We also appreciate donations of caps and gowns for our GED graduates.
