How You Can Help

Monetary Donation


100% of your donation will go to fund a bookcase, books or a community celebration. You can set up monthly donation or give a one time gift! We have partnered with African Children's Haven until we have non-profit status of our own so that all donations are tax deductible.  Use the donation button on or homepage or write a check payable to African Children's Haven. On the memo line of the check please write Books Within Reach.  

Provide a Bookcase to an Apartment Community


This gift would provide the apartment community with a brand new bookcase like the one pictured. It would also include an assortment of new and used books to fill the bookshelf.  

Cost: $350

Help Refill an Apartment Community Bookcase


This gift would refill an apartment communities bookcase.  Each month or as needed bookcases at apartments are refilled so that they are full.  We want to insure we have a book that will peak everyones interest! 

Cost: $200 

Community Celebration or Community Event


This would provide each child with a new book to take home, a craft activity, and a snack.  If you would like to provide the snack yourself the total amount would decrease. 

Cost: $150  

Donate Books


We are in need of new and used books to fill the bookshelves. We accept books appropriate for children from birth to young adults.  We can pickup or you can drop them off at our headquarters. 

Host a Book Drive


You can host a book drive at your school, office, church, event, or place of business.  We can provide you with a custom sign or help you design your own!  We can also help you advertise on our Facebook page.
