Ways to Give to ALA

You may make your gift to ALA in one of two ways:

  • Give online through giveALA.
  • Send your donation form with check or credit card information by mail

Give online

When you use giveALA, our online gift system, you help us save time, reduce paperwork and eliminate postage. The transaction process is encrypted, so you can safely and securely support ALA and any of the divisions, offices and round tables.

You may either make a one-time gift or make payments on pledges online using your credit card. Once processed, you will automatically receive an e-mail acknowledgement of your donation.

Mail your check

Contributions can be made by our printable donation form along with your check or credit card information to the American Library Association. For the security of your gift, please do not send cash.

Mail to:

American Library Association
ALA Development Office
50 East Huron Street
Chicago, IL 60611

For additional information on ways to support ALA, please contact the ALA Development Office at development@ala.org or telephone at 312.280.3259.

Donate a Vehicle

Do you have a vehicle that is ready for retirement?  The American Library Association is able to accept vehicle donations through our partnership with Donation Line, LLC.  Take advantage of this method to support ALA and earn valuable tax deductions as we can receive cars, trucks, vans, boats, motorcycles, jet skis, snowmobiles, RV’s and even airplanes.  Vehicles do not need to be running!  Towing is free, and pickup is available as soon as possible.

To donate a used vehicle to support ALA, call 1-877-227-7487 and request extension 2797 or go to www.donationline.com, click the Donate Now tab and select the American Library Association.  Please have your title in hand when you are ready to donate.
