The Pennsylvania Bible Society's outreach revolves around our Scripture Resource Center
(701 Walnut St., Philadelphia), and our Scripture Grant Program.

Resource Center

The Scripture Resource Center offers a comprehensive collection of Scripture.  We carry the offerings of many Scripture publishers.  Special texts are available for scholars, Bible study students, children, the vision impaired, and for special events such as baptisms, weddings, graduations, etc.

Grant Program
Income from the Rev. Edwin H. Frey Memorial Fund is used to provide free Bibles to those who cannot afford to buy one.
Grants are made to various activities such as children's summer camp and after-school programs, prisons, ESL training programs, hospitals and hospice care centers, disaster recovery assitance, inner-city and emerging ministries.
Requests for more information on applying for a grant or making a donation to the grants program should be directed to:
