You may make an online donation using our PayPal donation page. This method requires you to have an existing PayPal account or create a new one as part of the donation process. Donations can be made in US or Canadian Dollars, British Pounds, Euros, or Japanese Yen. Please note: all PayPal donations are processed through our Global Office in the United States, so we can only provide a US tax receipt for donations made via PayPal.


We are happy to accept your frequent flyer miles in the form of award tickets. Please take a moment to complete the Pledge to Donate Frequent Flyer Mileage Award Ticket Online Form. Your donation of an award ticket will help keep our overhead costs low and continue to direct much-needed funds directly to our programs.


In-kind donations are critical to our success. Room to Read relies on supporters’ generous contributions of new books, technology (e.g. software, hardware), new building supplies and materials (e.g. cement, paint) and pro-bono services in order to enhance our programs and maximize the efficiency of our work. Due to the varied needs and requirements of each country of operation, we evaluate each gift-in-kind opportunity on a case by case basis. If you are interested in In-kind donations, please visit our organizational funders page and fill out the partnership inquiry form.
