Who We Are

Welcome to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit dedicated to assisting booksellers in need since 1996. Whether you’re a bookseller, a friend of the book industry or someone looking to make a difference, we thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

Who We Help

Booksellers who have a demonstrated financial need arising from severe hardship and/or emergency circumstances are eligible to apply for assistance.  In 2012 the Foundation provided financial assistance to 41 book store employees and their families. In addition, 11 grants were given to assist with the aftermath of hurricane Sandy through our disaster assistance program.  The higher education scholarships were announced in July, and 35 scholarships were awarded for a total of $100,000.  To learn more about the assistance the Binc Foundation provides, go to Who We Help.
