I have some amazing news.
For the past few years Prison Book Project has been pursuing the idea of purchasing our own building. We have identified a building we would like to purchase and now need to raise the funds to purchase it.
As you know, this is so important because of the increased costs of shipping and the overhead of our current rent, we have had to halt or reduce shipping over the past years.
I am happy to report that The Templeton Foundation has offered us a $50,000 grant towards the purchase of a building but we need to raise an additional $50,000 to receive the funds.
This is amazing news, and shows the confidence The Templeton Foundation has in our programs. But… in order to unlock these funds, we need your help!
That’s why I am writing to you today, and why we need your help. We may never have the opportunity for a matching gift like this again.
You have been an amazing supporter of Prison Book Project over the years. You know the value of putting books into prison and ending the cycle of recidivism.
Will you join us in this effort by making a generous donation of $250, $500, $1000 or whatever you can afford today?
Every dollar you donate will help us reach our goal, and insure that we are able to receive the full $50,000 matching grant. You can use the slip below to send back your donation but please do so as soon as possible. We have raised $25,000 of this and need the other $25,000 raised within the next two weeks.
Please, help us achieve this important goal and change the lives of thousands of inmates across the nation this year!
