How to help

We believe in homeschooling!

Our ministry began with an admiration for those who home school and a recognition that far too many homeschooling families struggle to buy the curriculum and books they need.

The Book Samaritan is a not-for-profit Christian organization that provides free books and curriculum to homeschooling families with financial constraints. We offer a wide variety of homeschooling materials and ship all items free-of-charge.

In return, we ask only that when the recipient is finished, they pass along the material to another homeschooling family for free or return the items to The Book Samaritan for redistribution.

Our headquarters is a historic two-story home in Oklahoma. We pay no rent, no utilities and are staffed by homeschool moms and other volunteers. We want every resource we have to go directly toward providing books and curriculum to homeschooling families that need them.

Our organization relies on book, curriculum and monetary donations to build and distribute our library of available materials. 100% of all cash donations are used to buy books and curriculum.

All shipping expenses are donated by our local church

The Book Samaritan is here to help take the stress out of buying books and curriculum so homeschooling families can get down to the business of educating their children!

The Book Samaritan needs your support.  Many homeschooling households have books and curriculum that are not being used.  We understand it's tempting---and sometimes financially necessary---to resell old books and curriculum you no longer need.  However, we humbly ask that you consider an occasional donation to The Book Samaritan.  We will waste no time or money redistributing your donation to another home schooling family who needs it! Thank you for your support.

What can you Do?

  • Book donations--We accept any used books, workbooks, flash cards, kits, DVDs, CD-ROMS, and school supplies. They will be shelved for immediate redistribution.  Anything that can be used in homeschooling.
