Thank you for thinking of CLiF on your birthday or your child’s birthday!

If you or your child feel you already have enough gifts, consider asking guests to contribute a new children’s book to your birthday celebration. It’s a wonderful way to support CLiF’s work and include an uplifting message as part of your special day.

After you’ve held your birthday book drive, please contact CLiF and send the books to us via media mail. We will donate them directly to the low-income, at-risk, and rural children we serve throughout New Hampshire or Vermont.

Some of our supporters choose to hold birthday fundraisers instead of book drives. To host a fundraiser, each guest is invited to give a check made out to CLiF. You can send donations to our address below. We will use the funds to support one of our many programs (which you and your guests are, of course, invited to attend!)

As a token of our appreciation, you, your child, or anyone who makes a donation will receive a personalized thank you CLiF, detailing how your contribution has helped children in New Hampshire or Vermont.

Our address is:

Children’s Literacy Foundation
3579 Waterbury-Stowe Road
Waterbury Center, VT 05677

If you have any questions about birthday book drives, please contact Sarah Hall at or 802-244-0944.

CLiF has served over 350,000 children since 1998.
