Other Ways to Give

Your Donation Goes Twice As Far

During February you can double the number of people and communities who receive the gift of Hesperian’s lifesaving books at no cost. Thanks to the Wang-McLaren family, every gift made in February will be matched, dollar-for-dollar (up to $2,100) to support Hesperian’s Gratis Book Program.

Your donation to the Gratis Book Program will make a lasting impact on entire communities. For each book distributed, the knowledge and information is shared with over 50 people! With your help, Hesperian books will support small organizations and dedicated volunteers as they work to improve the health of their neighbors and communities.

Will you join us in making a difference for communities worldwide by making a gift today?

Workplace Giving

If your employer has a matching gifts program, you can double, or even triple, your donation to Hesperian. If Hesperian is not on the list of eligible recipients, you can request that we be added.
