Tribute Gifts

Do you have a book or comic lover in your life? Consider giving a tribute gift in their honor. Tribute gifts are a special way to celebrate birthdays, weddings, graduations, holidays, or any special occasion. When a gift is made, we will mail the honoree a card informing them of the gift made in their name. We will also send you a letter acknowledging our gift for tax purposes.

Matching Donations

Many employers will match tax-deductible charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees, and employee’s spouses. Some provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours or match employee monetary contributions. Check with your workplace. We can send you the appropriate paperwork to make your dollars go further.

It brings me happiness to know that even with a small contribution, I can help booksellers across the country when crisis strikes. Books, bookstores, and booksellers bring me such joy that it means something to me to be able to contribute to relief when booksellers are struggling. We all need a boost at times, and I’m happy that I can provide a small one. After setting up my monthly contribution, I got a very sweet phone call from the folks at Binc. Their genuine care for both their donors and their recipients was heart warming. Thrilled to be contributing to this organization.
