Central Avenue believes promoting reading and making books help make the world a better place. Our founders are also highly aware of the privilege of where they were born and raised. Central Avenue resolves to give what we can and are moving towards a set pledge. We have also learned that publicly sharing what we give encourages others to give. For that reason, here is a partial list of the organizations that Central Avenue supports on an ongoing basis:
- Effective Altruism
- Book Industry Charitable Foundation
- Hurston/Wright Foundation
- Young Authors Publishing
- Canadian Red Cross
