Monetary Contributions(may be tax deductible) 

Every little bit helps: it only takes $10 to send four packages of books to incarcerated women. In addition, a tax-deductible donation of $75 will pay our rent for a whole month. Please make your check out to Chicago Legal Advocacy for Incarcerated Mothers (CLAIM) and write  “For CBWP” in the memo line of your check. CLAIM is a 501(c)3 organization and they act as our fiscal sponsors. You can send checks or cash to us at:

Chicago Books to Women in Prison
P O Box 14778
Chicago IL 60614

For information about donating books or office supplies, please see our Donations page.

Special Thanks
The following organizations have supported Chicago Books to Women in Children through grants and donations:

  • Chicago Foundation for Women, 2007
  • McDougal Littell, $1200 grant in 2005

IMPORTANT: Learn more before donating books
Please check with us before organizing a book drive or putting together a donation of more than a few books from your own library. We are well stocked and storage space is limited.
