Urantia Foundation Programs

Book Publishing

There are many important facets to the publishing efforts of Urantia Foundation. Text files must be formatted and edited before The Urantia Book and its translations can be made available electronically and in print to readers around the globe. Text files must also be preserved and updated as needed

Book Distribution

Urantia Foundation works in partnership with top-notch distributors to develop worldwide markets for The Urantia Book and its translations. In areas where distribution channels are nonexistent or challenging, the Foundation disseminates books through its outreach programs and the programs of service organizations.


Urantia Foundation is committed to providing quality translations of The Urantia Book that faithfully represent the original English text. No translation is ever really finished; there is always room for improvement. Therefore, the revision process is ongoing. To date, there are enough translations to allow 80% of the world to read The Urantia Book in English or their native language.


Urantia Foundation has established educational outreach programs, including free online classes in multiple languages through the Urantia Book International School. Additional offerings include workshops, retreats, seminars, and symposiums.


The primary goal of this program is to provide Urantia Books to individual readers, local groups, libraries and institutions, and service organizations. In addition, readers are kept informed with quarterly newsletters and may subscribe to our daily Thoughts to Ponder. The Foundation also sponsors conferences and events of social organizations.


The Urantia Revelation spreads exponentially through the digital world. Readers worldwide benefit from a 27-language website and multiple social media platforms. The online text, downloads, and the Android app give people free access to the book and its teachings. The online search engine enhances study like never before. A strong digital presence is essential to the mission of Urantia Foundation.

Building Preservation

The headquarters of Urantia Foundation is located in a beautiful historic building in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Built in 1908, it served as the site of the early transactions, meetings, and study groups associated with The Urantia Book. It continues to host the board of trustees, service organizations, workshops and seminars, and a weekly study group. Visitors are always welcome!

What The Urantia Book Means to Me
