HOW IT WORKS
Reading without Borders contributions go directly to funding books that help children see themselves through the stories they consume. The funds are used to pay writers, illustrators, graphic designers, audiobook production, e-book conversion, copyeditors, and even print books.
TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION IS MADE
Because of the scarcity of diverse characters in books, we need your help in creating inclusive titles. Your contribution will have a direct impact on helping ALL children see themselves in the books they read!
TITLE IS COMMISSIONED
Working in partnership with sponsors, writers, illustrators, editors, publishers, and production specialists, Reading Without Borders supports inclusive literacy themes by doing the following:
Scouting diverse stories that represent traditionally underserved writers and communities
Creating books that “unbury” voices from diverse demographics
Partnering with publishers to support small presses and kid lit publications
Creating equity and access in distribution in communities across the country
TITLE IS DISTRIBUTED
Through our partnerships and foundations, we then distribute the title you made possible! Diversity and inclusion is our key area of focus here at Reading Without Borders, and we ensure all of our books get into all the hands that need them the most!
