Getting Involved

Want to be more involved with our mission to end the African book famine? Besides donating funds or books, please consider volunteering at one of our warehouses, attending an upcoming event, or becoming a member of one of our giving societies!


If you are looking for a fun, satisfying volunteer experience, join us at Books For Africa's warehouse! At BFA’s warehouses in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Atlanta, Georgia, volunteers sort and pack books according to category and age level. No heavy lifting is involved.


BFA events are a great way to meet fellow supporters and learn more about our mission. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!

Giving Societies

Supporters who join BFA’s giving societies receive exclusive event invites, recognition in our Annual Report, and more – see what all the excitement is about!

Partners & Funders

In fiscal year 2001, Books For Africa sent 40 container shipments of books to Africa. In fiscal year 2021, 20 years later, we sent 3.1 million books to 28 countries! We could never have achieved this growth without generous support from our funders and partners.
