In the first year of the project, the fund development team raised $17,000 to support the project and the printing of the first volume of books.
In its second year, the team raised $40,000. The State Farm Grant gave Books and Beyond $24,000 alone.
This year, the team has set a goal of raising $25,000 with $10,000 of that money going towards subsidizing the cost of IU students to travel to Rwanda next summer.
