Support the Work

Your donation to the Jane Addams Peace Association (a 501-c-3) is tax-deductible and helps us support authors, illustrators, parents, teachers, and librarians deepen understanding of peace and justice for children and their adults through reflection, dialogue, and social action. With your funds we will be able to:

Support and promote authors and illustrators as we recognize their exemplary literary and artistic work that powerfully engages children’s thinking about peace, social justice, global community, and equality for all people through award honorariums and ongoing promotion of their books.  Through our “Books In Their Hands” program we bring authors and illustrators to low- income schools nationally to share their Jane Addams award books.  

Support and promote social justice narratives reaching children as a part of our “Books In Their Hands” Program.  We donate Jane Addams Children’s Book Award commended titles into the hands of children. 

Support and promote youth voice and social justice learning as we seek to include children’s perspectives in the award process and encourage Learn and Do engagement with Jane Addams Children’s Books, a curriculum that leads to empowerment and social action.
