How to donate from UK
Become a monthly donor!
Give as you earn!
Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to READ International. Sign up here to donate to READ via Payroll Giving.
Remember to Gift Aid it!
Gift Aid provides a great opportunity for you to increase the value of your donation to READ International. Provided you are a UK taxpayer, and have paid an amount of income or capital gains tax equal to the amount we can reclaim from HM Revenue and Customs (currently 25p in every £1), then you are eligible for the Gift Aid scheme.
BOOK BANKS in the UK
We currently have more than 20 book donation banks spread cross seven London boroughs. These are generously managed for us pro bono by Veolia Environmental Services.
Instead of shipping your donated books all the way to Tanzania, we now sell all book donations online though ethical booksellers Better World Books and use the generated funds to buy brand-new, locally published and locally relevant books in Tanzania. Any books that can’t be sold are recycled – ensuring no book ever goes to landfill!
Our Book Banks are in Westminster, Lambeth, Kingston, Tower Hamlets, Haringey, Southwark and Richmond. A book bank can also be found at Cambridge University.
