Program guidelines for discounted books
- If your organization qualifies for either program, your agency may receive up to 1,000 books per order at just $5.50 per book, plus shipping and handling. Groups in California also pay the California sales tax.
- If you discover you need more books after your initial 1,000-book order, please call us at 800.434.4633.
- Nonprofit organizations and educational groups who receive books at this reduced rate will be required to write a brief report on how the books were used and their impact on the readers and families who used them.
- Once you get the books, you can’t resell them.
- A group can qualify for EITHER the Nonprofit Grant Book Program OR the Educational Grant Book Program, but not both.
- Teacher’s Training Manuals are available only at the full rate.
Additional funding sources
Even with reduced pricing, it can be difficult for nonprofits and educational groups to purchase the number of books they need. To help with additional funding, you may want to reach out to:
- Your state: Some states set aside funds for education and community health. For example, in California, funds from tobacco taxes can be used for health education.
- Community and religious groups and school districts who hold literacy classes at their site
- Local charities who promote education and health
- Employers who wish to reduce work days missed when parents stay home with a sick child
