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.
