Why donate to Tree House Books?

All of Tree House Books' programs are offered at no cost. No one is turned away because of financial limitations. We rely on the generous support of our community to make our programs and services available to thousands of children and families in Philadelphia each year.

We provide Take-Home Libraries and literacy programming for kids all over Philadelphia, where there is only one age-appropriate book for every 300 children in our most underserved neighborhoods.

A gift of just $20 today will ensure a child grows up with at least twenty books in her home.

For $75, you will ensure she continues to receive books and support all year long!

For $100, you ensure that her entire family has books they can read together!

For $250, you can ensure that her entire family has books and support all year long!

Children who grow up with at least twenty books in their homes stay in school, on average, three years longer than those who grow up in homes without them.

Don't wait! Make your gift today and give kids all over Philadelphia every opportunity to pursue their dreams.
