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:

Illustrator R. Gregory Christie with a student

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.

Support and promote youth voices in the award process as they read, compare, and contrast Jane Addams Children’s Book Finalists and contribute their perspectives via our Jane Addams Children’s Book Award Youth Participation program.

Support and promote social justice learning as we create and disseminate Social Justice Learn and Do activities arising from the work of Jane Addams authors and illustrators for intermediate and middle school students

Support and promote social justice narratives reaching children as you participate in our Books in Their Hands program.
