Just World Educational needs and welcomes your financial support, which will help us fulfill our plans now and over the years to come.

We’re very grateful for any and all support you can provide.

We’re delighted to have a Memorandum of Understanding with Virginia Organizing, a Charlottesville, Va.-based 501c3 organization that accepts grants and gifts on behalf of JWE. If you want assured tax-deductibility for your donation, please choose the “Virginia Organizing” option below.

A note from board member Richard Falk:

“JWE has a golden opportunity to make a difference in this country… Helena Cobban has gathered a first-rate team to carry forward JWE’s vision, but it needs adequate funding if it is to fulfill its potential. This moment of the founding of JWE is the time when a generous contribution will be most productive. I hope that you agree, and will join with us in making great things happen for JWE.”


V.O. accepts donations for us either online, or via a mailed check. They take out a small admin fee from what you give. This fee is lower for donations mailed to them.

To donate online, go to V.O.’s donation webpage at the link below. Choose your amount, and whether you want to use a credit card or Paypal. Lower on the page, at the dropdown menu for “Select a designation”, click on Just World Educational.

To send an assuredly tax-deductible donation by mail, please write a check to Virginia Organizing with “Just World Educational” in the memo line. Mail it to:

703 Concord Avenue, Charlottesville, VA 22903.


We hope to have our tax-deductible (501c3) status by the end of 2016, but the IRS moves in mysterious ways. When we get it, we will tell all who have donated to us directly, and you can discuss with your tax advisor your eligibility for a tax deduction at that point.

To give directly, please make your check out to “Just World Educational” and mail it to us at:

P.O. Box 5484, Charlottesville, VA 22905.

Thanks so much for any support you can give! We welcome any questions you have– along with any suggestions you have for how to make our programing sharper, and more effective. Send ’em along to: jwe-guru@justworldbooks.com
