      We started a publishing revolution...

      Now help us keep it going.

      Together, we created a new kind of publishing, one based on generosity. We built a community of readers and supporters throughout the world. And we inspired generous donations to thousands of organizations and people in need. 

      We need your support. The Concord Free Press is a labor of love. No one gets paid. But we do have significant expenses—printing, postage, and rent. 

      Your generosity helps fund our next book and our other plans for the future. Be part of the Concord Free Press. 

      You can donate right here via PayPal...


       

      Or, you can support us the old-fashioned way by mailing a check to Concord Free Press, 152 Commonwealth Avenue, Concord, MA 01742. Your donation will enable us to keep publishing great books. For free.
