Page Ahead Children's Literacy Program is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation registered in the State of Washington. All contributions made to Page Ahead are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by federal law. For more information, contact the Washington Secretary of State's Charities Division.

Donate Money

We have negotiated with publishers to receive deep discounts on books. Therefore, your cash contribution goes even further toward preventing illiteracy.

We use a free service to process our credit card transactions, so 100 percent of your donation goes to Page Ahead. When you donate, it will appear as "Give Direct" on your credit card statement, not Page Ahead.

Organize a Book Drive

Page Ahead works with businesses, school groups and community organizations to collect new books to be distributed through our programs. We also link groups to specific schools for "adoption." Volunteers provide the books (through book drives or cash contributions) for the at-risk children in a program and then participate in reading events within those programs.


Last year, 500 volunteers spent 3,000 hours sorting/packing books, reading to children, preparing bulk mailings, organizing book drives, designing our web site, and updating our database. We are happy to work with individuals or with groups of volunteers on a regular or occasional basis.
