First Book


Mission Statement

First Book is an award-winning nonprofit social enterprise that is dedicated to removing barriers to equitable education for children living in low-income communities. 

Why Donate to First Book?

Over half of America’s low-income children are growing up in homes without books.

That’s millions. Millions of children live in a book desert – no books to spark imagination. No books to strengthen their critical thinking skills. No books to connect with the outside world.

First Book changes all of that.

In 30 years, First Book has distributed over 225 million new books and educational resources worth $2 billion to programs and schools serving children from low-income communities in more than 30 countries.

We are focused on removing barriers so kids in need can learn and thrive.

Together, we can give new high-quality books and resources for kids who need them most, to help fuel a love of reading and learning.
