RECIEVE A GIFT

For the month of June, Umlaut has been running a donation campaign for lightly used AP/SAT/ACT/Subject Test preparatory books to donate to our foster youth. Thanks to our amazing donors, we have collected over 70 study resources including textbooks, workbooks, and flashcards. Check our Donations List and make a request for materials through our Material Request Form! If you want to see the product before we deliver it, send us an email and we will attach a video of the donation.

Delivery Process

At Umlaut, we value the safety of our team and our foster youth. When delivering a package, we ensure items have been quarantined for at least a week before wiping surfaces with a sanitary wipe. We continue to take measures to avoid contamination by handling deliverables with gloves, masks, and care. For any further concerns, please email our CCO at chloe@umlautfoundation.com.
