Spring Postage Drive
April 1 - May 31
Help us send books to inmates nationwide.
The Prison Library Project (PLP), sponsored by the Claremont Forum, relies on donations to cover postage costs, and we are asking you to contribute to our annual postage drive.
Our goal of $6000 may seem high, however, our current budget allows us around $2000 a month to send books and educational materials to prisoners who write to us requesting reading materials. Currently, we send only 300-400 books per month, meaning that many book requests go unfilled because we do not have sufficient funds to cover the postage. With your help, we could increase that amount and respond to more requests.
Access to books and other educational resources remains limited for many who are incarcerated. Your contribution will help us put more requested books, along with dictionaries and other educational materials, in the hands of prisoners across the country – currently in over 500 U.S. prisons.
Consider becoming a monthly donor and know that your donation will help us complete our mission throughout the year.
