Ways to Give

One Time and Monthly Book Buddy

Book Buddies are monthly donors whose dedicated contribution ensures that children and families receive the tools and information they need to make reading aloud a daily routine all year long. When you join as a Book Buddy, you join this exclusive group of passionate and loyal supporters.

Donate Your Celebration

Are you celebrating your birthday? Is your book club gathering donations? Are you doing a charity run? Does your third-grade class want to make an impact on your community? Whatever the reason, you can support more children and families reading aloud together by celebrating with Reach Out and Read. Ready to get started? Download your toolkit here.

Virtual Book Drive

At Reach Out and Read, we believe all children should grow up learning a love of reading on the laps of people who love them. That’s why our doctors work with parents every day to demonstrate the value of reading aloud together. They share so many books each year—nearly 419,000—and that’s why we need YOU! When you donate books through Reach Out and Read Carolinas’ Virtual Book Drive, you provide 2337 trained medical practitioners across the Carolinas with the tools they need to promote reading aloud every day.

In Honor / In Memory

When you make a donation in honor or memory of a loved one, you celebrate them in a special way and your gift to Reach Out and Read becomes especially meaningful. Your gift will mean that even more children and families know the joy and extraordinary power of reading aloud together, in celebration of someone special to you.
