Many of World Wisdom’s projects are only made possible by support from interested friends throughout the world. This is a list of ways that interested readers can help provide wisdom for a world badly in need of such guidance.
Contact webmaster@worldwisdom.com with any questions
about how to help World Wisdom in its mission.


Financial gifts

Making a financial gift:

General information for all donors. Donors can choose to have their contributions recognized in their own names, “in memory of” another person, or anonymously. World Wisdom faithfully honors donations that donors wish to prelimit to a designated usage (for example, to a specific book or project). Financial gifts allow World Wisdom to stretch our limited financial resources to improve our publishing program. Contributions are not tax deductible.

Become a “Friend” or a “Patron”. An annual gift of $100 (Friend) or $500 (Patron) will entitle you to a 40% discount on World Wisdom’s products. Contributions are not tax deductible.

Become a “Benefactor”. An annual gift of $1,000 will entitle you to receive a free copy of each of World Wisdom’s new publications during that year (approximately a $350 retail value) and a 40% discount on any additional products you wish to purchase. Contributions are not tax deductible.

Sponsor a book. For a contribution of $7,500 you will become a “Sponsor” of a forthcoming book of your choice. Your name or “in memory of” another person will be recognized in the front of the book. We will provide interested donors with a list both of scheduled titles and of worthy books that we cannot publish without sponsorship. This contribution offsets a small portion of the costs of publishing a book, but it will allow us to leverage our limited resources. Contributions are not tax deductible.

Donate WW books to libraries.  WW will act as an intermediary for any donor who wants to donate sets of WW's books directly to libraries in the U.S., Canada or the U.K.

  Donors will purchase books from WW at a 50% discount, plus shipping.

  The minimum donation is $10,000.

Note: Most libraries are owned either by a government or by a not-for-profit group. Most donations either to governments or to not-for-profit groups are tax deductible. WW will provide donors with a receipt and affidavit attesting that the gift was sent directly to the respective libraries on behalf of the donor. Prospective donors should consult their own tax advisors.


“Donor-advised” gifts. Donors may sponsor a project of their choice in their name or “in memory of” another person. We will look forward to enquiries. Contributions are not tax deductible.

If you intend to donate, please download a form, fill it out, and mail it in to World Wisdom, with our deepest thanks:
Click here for the form in Word.doc format, or

click here for the form in Adobe.pdf format, or

click here for the form in a generic rtf format.

To ask any questions about donating to World Wisdom, please e-mail the World Wisdom webmaster.



Bequests

Remember World Wisdom in your estate plan:

We hope that interested readers will remember World Wisdom in their estate planning because additional financial resources will enable important projects. It is possible to earmark any bequest to a specific project or set of publications. Contact us if you want to finance a specific project. Any bequest should note how the giver wants the gift to be identified or if the gift is anonymous.

Please click here to send us an inquiry about making a bequest.


Buy & share our books

Buy & share our books:

Buy & share our books. The simplest way for friends to help World Wisdom’s mission is to buy our products. The greatest help is when readers subscribe to our World Wisdom Book Club.


Editing projects

Help with editing projects:

Edit content for www.dictionaryofspiritualterms.org. There is a great need for editors to supply additional content for this important dictionary of spiritual terms.

Editing & proofreading. We have a number of projects for books or for our website which could benefit from someone skilled in editing English text. We can find something that will be of interest to readers of Perennialist literature and texts on traditional spirituality. Some of our readers enjoy seeing our books many months before they are actually printed.

Studies in Comparative Religion. World Wisdom now holds the rights to all of the issues of Studies in Comparative Religion, the most important English language journal of the twentieth century on the Perennialist School. We are in the process of electronically scanning the old issues and we need help in proofreading the resulting text.

You can e-mail us to ask about editing projects for which you might volunteer.
