Our Mission
We believe that education is the best path out of poverty for kids in need.

But access to quality education is far from equal. Significant barriers stand in the way for kids in low-income communities, including scarce books and learning materials and a lack of diversity in the books that do reach them. Even the most basic needs go unmet for many of these children. First Book’s mission is to remove these barriers so every child has the chance to learn.

Give Stories of Hope
You can help unlock a child's full potential.

Thanks to a match from Penguin Random House, your donation this holiday season will help give twice as many books and resources to kids who need them most. For many of the kids we serve, your gift may be the first books they ever get to call their own.
