Urgent Appeal for Funds to Support Revolution Books in Cleveland
In the next few days, we urgently need your help. $1000 is needed to cover basic costs of operating, like rent & utilities.
Can you give $100 today? Can you give $10 a month?
In 24 hours, we received over $400 in donations and pledges!
But we still need to raise another $600. Please donate or pledge today.
People come to Revolution Books from all over to find the books and the deep engagement with each other about why the world is the way it is and the possibility of a radically different way the world could be. There are lots of people, including YOU, that appreciate our store and our vision, even if you don’t visit us on a regular basis!
That’s ok…but we really need your support right now! And it will really make a difference.
Here is what one person wrote to us when they heard about our need for support and funds:
I was introduced to Revolution Books on Coventry in Cleveland Heights about 3 months ago. After participating in the Rise up October March and Rally in New York City. When I came back to Cleveland I contacted Revolution Bookstore to volunteer. After I learned that the bookstore was ran by volunteers I was amazed. I met wonderful people who are very serious about the injustices of all people. I found books that I have not seen in any other bookstore. I wanted to help Revolution Books become that place where activists like myself could have serious conversations about what is going on across America. I am a retired disabled grandmother and I am willing to not only give my time but to donate when I can. Being on a fixed income is not easy but what would we do without Revolution Bookstore.
By contributing to the financial foundation of Revolution Books, you become part of a vibrant community like no other!
You can also send checks to: Revolution Books, 2804 Mayfield Rd, Cleveland Hts OH 44118
Here is another letter of support we just received:
There are some things in this world that by its very presence gives you the reason to keep on going day after day. Revolution Books Cleveland and its efforts as part of a larger revolutionary movement to change the entire world does just that for me. As Bob Avakian has repeatedly emphasized, the world is a horror… but it doesn’t have to be this way. I couldn’t image living without Revolution Books and all it’s part of. The books, periodicals and especially Revolution newspaper and the writings of BA have given me an understanding that has helped me to become part of fighting to create a world worth living in. The store is like a bright light shining through the darkness. I encourage everyone who thinks deeply about the future to go to Revolution Books, buy the books and journals they carry, and generously donate to help strengthening its role bringing such valuable knowledge to a growing number of people.
Even though our store is all volunteer, we face the same, and more, financial necessity as other stores. And right now, we are in a serious financial crunch. The cold of January and February make for a couple very slow months at the store. And in addition, we are hit with major bills that only come once a year–like the Cleveland Heights business permits, major tax bills, and more.
And while we will be launching a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo to raise money to dramatically increase the number, variety, and relevance of books we carry, right now, we need to pay the rent!
The world today, with all its horrors, holds the potential for something far better. To unlock that – at the foundation of RB – is the most advanced scientific theory and leadership for an actual revolution for the emancipation of humanity: the new synthesis of communism brought forward by the revolutionary leader, Bob Avakian. RB is a bookstore with literature, history, science, art, philosophy, and revolutionary theory…a place of discovery and engagement. Scientific and poetic, wrangling and visionary.
A bookstore at the center of a movement for revolution.
Become a regular sustainer of Revolution Books, or give a one-time donation through paypal.

You can donate or sustain at any level, from $5 to $1000!
You can also donate and/or sustain Revolution Books monthly by coming in, calling, or making other arrangements.
