Everybody Wins! DC’s mission is to bring the joy of reading to students in the DC Metro Area. EW!DC is currently in its 22nd year of serving low-income elementary school students in the Washington area. With the help of our volunteers, supporters, and friends, EW!DC has been able to serve over 65,000 students, distribute more than 210,000 new books, and enrich the lives of thousands of Reading Mentors.


We need the assistance of stakeholders like you to continue bringing the magic of reading to children in our community. Donate now and make a difference in the lives of children. Thank you for your support.

Donate Books


We are always in need of new books to use in many ways. Each school year EW!DC distributes more than 14,000 books to our students and provides books for Reading Mentors to share with students at each Power Lunch school. Make a donation of new books or view our wish list of the most popular books.


If you'd like to hold a book drive to collect books for our students, please note that we are only able to accept new books. And because we have to deliver books where they are needed at our program locations, any books collected through a book drive need to be delivered to our main office for sorting and distribution. 


Please contact Rachael Walker at (202) 216-9467 ext. 203 or for more information on making a donation of new books.

"Seeing her become more confident and her love of reading increase has been such a joy to watch."
"It's mostly fun to read and watch her become such a confident reader and learn to love reading as much as I do. She is one of my best friends."
"When an adult helps a child, it tells that child how special they are. We send a message to the child- you are important to me- that is powerful and undeniable."
"It's a fantastic program, and I think the mentors get as much, if not more, than the student. You meet wonderful kids and have lots of fun."
"When I read, I learn and grow-- you know, like Jack and the Beanstalk kind of growing and that's really big!"
"I wish Everybody Wins was everyday!"
