Books in Homes Australia

Books in Homes Australia is a charitable foundation that provides books-of-choice to children living in remote, disadvantaged and low socio-economic circumstances, ensuring crucial early literacy engagement and the development of reading skills needed for lifelong achievement.

Fundraising Campaigns

Please donate to support our vision to create an Australia where every child and family has access to books in the home.

Books in Homes Fundraising Appeal


This general Books in Homes Appeal is used to support small disadvantaged, remote or Indigenous preschools, childcare centres, and primary schools across the country that would otherwise not have access to books or simple items like stationery that we take for granted, and where it is highly unlikely they will find a Sponsor.

Books in Homes Rotary DG Family Project Books for Kids Campaign


Please help Rotary raise funds in the Books in Homes, Rotary District 9810 Books for Kids Campaign, which aims to identify and fund primary schools in Victoria’s South Eastern and Yarra Ranges suburbs, that will benefit from being on the program.

Books in Homes GIANTS Greater Western Sydney Campaign


Books in Homes is partnering with the GIANTS for a common cause—to identify primary schools in Western and South Western Sydney that will benefit from being on the Books in Homes Program and to raise funds to help make that happen.

Books in Homes Postage Fund


Books in Homes occasionally receives independent donations of books, magazines and other gifts to send to children in communities, centres and primary schools, participating on our Program. The cost of shipping to outback Australia is high so donations to our postage fund helps keep the goods flowing and the smiles coming.
