How to Donate

Since LibriVox was founded in 2005, our free, volunteer-read audiobooks have been downloaded more than 400 million times. Please help us continue making free audiobooks.

LibriVox has no paid staff, no board, no offices, no lobbyists, no fundraisers. We do, however, have costs for

  • keeping our servers running
  • keeping our software systems running (for managing volunteer projects, cataloging, and distributing our audiobooks).

This requires people – and it is too complex and too time-consuming for volunteers.

Would you consider helping LibriVox with a donation? $5, $50, $500, $5000 … whatever you can spare.
