Ways to Give

EWDC offers a variety of options for people to support our students and our programs. Discover the way that works best for you and start helping children thrive through reading.

Make a one-time gift to support EWDC programs and have an immediate impact on the children we serve. Every gift, no matter the amount, truly makes a difference through the power of reading.

To make a one-time gift via our website, visit the donate page.

You can also mail a check made out to "Everybody Wins DC" to the EWDC main office: 

Everybody Wins DC
1420 New York Avenue NW, #650
Washington, DC 20005

If you would like to learn about other payment options, including ACH transfer or donating through a Donor Advised Fund, please reach out to Rody Baron, EWDC Director of Development, at rbaron@everybodywinsdc.org.

As a monthly donor, you will play a direct role in advancing EWDC's mission to help children thrive through reading. Your recurring gift will have a sustained impact by providing EWDC with the resources to expand programs and connect more children with the literacy and social-emotional support they need.

To make a monthly gift, select the “monthly” option on the donate page. Just $20 a month can make a world of difference.

Donating stocks, bonds, and mutual funds is a smart and simple way to make a big impact on our programs. Publicly traded stock that has increased in value and owned for more than one year provides better tax benefits than giving cash.

  • Your charitable income tax deduction will be equal to the fair market value of the stock, so you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock.
  • Because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock you may also save on brokerage fees.
  • Whether your stocks are held by yourself or are kept with a bank/broker, it is important that you notify EWDC in advance of making the gift. This will help to ensure that proper crediting and timely acknowledgement takes place.

Contact Rody Baron, EWDC Director of Development, at rbaron@everybodywinsdc.org to learn more.

Many companies (public & private) offer workplace giving campaigns to empower their employees donate to causes important to them. If your organization runs a CFC or United Way Campaign, please include our number in your workplace giving campaign designation.

CFC # 12915
United Way # 9163

A bequest is an excellent way to leave a legacy that will support and sustain our programs for years to come. Bequests offer flexibility and can be structured to fit your personal situation. The gift is revocable, so you can change your mind at any time should your circumstances change.

Contact Rody Baron, EWDC Director of Development, at rbaron@everybodywinsdc.org to learn more.

Donate children's books to EWDC and give a child the gift of reading. Check out our Book Wishlist on Bookshop.org and select some of our students' favorites, including titles that align with our goal to elevate the voices, experiences, and perspectives of diverse and marginalized communities. 

Want to have a bigger impact though books? Host a book drive with friends or colleagues! Email volunteers@everybodywinsdc.org and we'll help you get started.

Please note:

  • We only accept NEW books to distribute to children
  • We are unable to accept books with religious or holiday themes
  • Delivering books to our office? We are located at 1420 New York Ave., NW Washington, DC 20005 (Suite 650)
  • Paperbacks and hardbacks are welcome

Does your employer match your donations? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to increase or even double the value of charitable contributions made by their employees. Here are a few that do: Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, Bloomberg, Kirkland & Ellis, Wells Fargo & Company and BlackRock.

Not sure? Email your HR manager to find out if your employer matches charitable gifts. The paperwork takes less than 5 minutes to complete. That added step helps your favorite charitable organization receive DOUBLE or even TRIPLE the donation benefits.
