Rules for Donating

Which textbooks can be donated?

  • University and college textbooks published in the last 15 years
  • Study guides, course packs, foreign language textbooks and other material that assists in the studying process

We cannot accept high school books, textbooks published before the year 2002, badly damaged books, or entertainment books. Our partners are unable to make use of this material. We recommend reaching out to your local thrift store or public library.

Why it Matters

Empower Students Around the World.

We can create the next generation of doctors, entrepreneurs, and artists by helping students learn with high quality material. Education acts as a gateway for millions of young people around the world. It provides young people with the necessary skills to achieve personal success and to transform their communities.

Every textbook we receive is reused by students or recycled efficiently. We sustainably support our local and global communities, book by book.
