Since 1816, American Bible Society has been fulfulling its mission of making the Bible available to every person in a language and format each can understand and afford so all people may experience its life-changing message. American Bible Society helps people experience God through the Bible. We translate the Bible, distribute the Bible, engage people with the Bible, and advocate for the Bible’s message of hope here in America and everywhere in the world. Through the church and a global network of local Bible Societies, we carry the gospel message where it is needed most. Our research and our experience tell us the Bible makes us more generous, more compassionate, more loving toward our neighbors, and more hopeful about our future in Christ. That's why our mission since 1816 has been to help all people experience the life-changing message of God's Word.

Do you love to tell the “. . . old, old story of Jesus and His love?” Give a Bible-A-Month Partnership to your loved one and send a Bible every month in their honor to people all over the world who are eager to know His truth. You’ll put God’s Word into the hands of people who have never even seen a Bible and share the hope of His eternal love.
Poor reading skills are linked to crime, poverty and homelessness. You can help children in low-income neighborhoods build a foundation for a bright future by teaching them to read through our 16-week Bibles-based reading program. Your gift provides Bibles, Bible-based reading materials, teacher training and more to reach the hearts and souls of America’s children.
In India, orphanages are crowded with millions of precious, abandoned children. These boys and girls need assurance that they have a Heavenly Father who loves them. You can provide illustrated Bibles and share the promise that He has a plan to give them a future of hope (Jeremiah 29.11, CEV).
Faith in China is exploding! Yet, millions of Chinese believers still do not have Bibles. Sometimes, a single Bible is shared by 100 people! And that's why this opportunity to help provide God's Word is critical. Your gift today can help end the China Bible famine.
“Jesus loves me, this I know. For the Bible tells me so.” Millions of children around the world can’t sing that song because they don’t know that Jesus loves them. Your gift will provide Children’s Bibles to smiling young faces all over the world. Children around the world will receive the special gift that tells them “Yes, Jesus loves them.”
Last year, 50 million people went hungry at some point because they couldn’t afford to buy food. That’s one of every six Americans. Day after day, more hurting souls turn to the American Bible Society for help. Your gift today will help provide physical and spiritual nourishment in the form of food and Bibles for hundreds of thousands of children and their families in some of America’s most impoverished communities.
Times are tough for those who have a family member serving in the military halfway around the world. You can give comfort and hope through our Military Essential E100 Bible. The Bible comes with a 100-day reading guide, so families here at home will have the comfort of knowing they are reading passages their loved one is reading overseas.
Help give America’s wounded heroes the strength and comfort they need. Your gift provides Bibles plus topical Scripture booklets called God Understands. These booklets give thoughtful biblical answers to tough questions and serve as a reminder that God knows and understands our pain in a very real way.
Who can bring healing and peace to girls and young women whose lives have been shattered by brutal or vile rape, leaving permanent emotional and physical handicaps? Only God. That is why your gift to help brutalized girls and women in the Democratic Republic of Congo is so important. In more than a decade of conflict, thousands of girls and women have been sexually assaulted. They are in anguish and desperately need to know God’s healing love.
