Click the “Donate” button above to be taken to the official PayPal.com website, where you can make a donation to APBP right now! Donations of all sizes are accepted and appreciated. Remember, it only takes a couple dollars to mail a book and make a positive difference in the lives of the people we serve. Of course, larger donations are always welcome, too! 🙂
Checks can also be mailed to APBP; PO Box 601; Morgantown WV 26507, made out to Appalachian Prison Book Project.
We also welcome financial donations to support our Higher Education in Prison Initiative, which, in partnership with West Virginia University, will support credit-bearing college courses in prison.
Donations are tax-deductible. Scroll down for more information.
APBP only accepts paperback books. We have little storage space, so we have to limit the number and type of books that we accept. We can always use paperback dictionaries. As for other books, we generally can accept:
- Spanish-English dictionaries
- GED prep guides
- books on how to draw or learn music
- wiccan books
- popular fiction (spy, mystery, fantasy, urban).
If you mail books, please use regular post office delivery and not UPS. (UPS won’t deliver to our PO Box.) If you have questions about donations, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Books should NOT be left on the porch of The Aull Center. The Morgantown Public Library has graciously donated a space to us, and that was one of their few requests. They are so good to us, please respect those wishes.
APBP gets a steady stream of requests for particular books that are rarely donated. To help answer these requests, we’ve set up a Wish List so that you can donate a copy of one of these books, and we have two ways to order from the Wish List:
1. Jeanne at Pinocchio’s Books and Toys at 322 High Street has graciously agreed to help us with this. You can go into the store or call her at 304-296-2332 to review the list and order. If you’re not familiar with Pinocchio’s, their website is here: http://pinocchiosbooksandtoys.com
2. We’ve also set up a Wish List on Amazon, which you can find here: http://a.co/hPVY0kc The books marked Highest and High priority are the ones that we get the most requests for, but we could use more than one copy of all of these.
If you have it shipped to the gift registry address, it will come to me–Dennis (because Amazon won’t deliver to APBP’s P.O. Box), and I will personally guarantee that it gets sent out as soon as we get it.
