Yes. Adopt A Book, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) organization with the IRS (EIN 45-3302767).
We used to take donated books, but in 2024 we pivoted to only accepting financial donations. This allows us to reduce our operating costs by eliminating the need for extensive book storage and sorting. Instead, we purchase new books directly from supplies.
