Are you a sales rep for a publisher, sidelines provider, author, or someone who regularly visits bookstores? If you are then, you can help Binc spread the word to booksellers about the assistance available to them. We know that the more times a bookseller hears about Binc, the more apt they are to take advantage of our services. The value of having our message reinforced by publishers, industry representatives and authors is priceless.
You don’t have to be a Binc expert, you don’t have to know the answer to all the bookseller’s questions. We just ask you to take a few minutes to let them know that Binc is here if they find themselves facing a personal financial hardship. Let them know how to get in touch with Binc, and we will do the rest.
We have a short “elevator” speech you can use:
The Book Industry Charitable Foundation is meant to be a safety net for those working in bricks and mortar bookstores. Any bookstore employee who finds themselves facing a personal financial hardship caused by an unexpected event may apply to the Foundation for a tax-free grant. The Binc Foundation is funded by the companies and the employees of the book industry. We are the cornerstone of a caring community of book people.
