Five Title I Schools:
Each school has a high percentage of children from low-income families. A lifelong love of books and reading starts in childhood. The more books available, the more likely it is that a child will learn to love reading. Let's help give them a good start!
Since the schools are 501-C3 organizations, PBS Money and Book Credits donated to them can be recognized as tax deductions on your Federal tax forms.*
Your donations of Book Credits and/or PBS Money will go into the fund to send NEW books to kids at all of these schools. To read more about each school, you can click each link to go to the school's website.
We're thrilled to note that one of our members, Jerrie , volunteered to donate ALL of the credits to supply one of the schools (Midway). 1200 credits -- a huge donation from a huge heart! Thank you, Jerrie -- the students at Midway will love their books! If you have a lot of credits and want to make a big donation, please contact us for help facilitating that.
We thank all of our members who donate -- no donation is too small! Every single Book Credit turns into a book for a child, and a single book has the power to change a life, as PaperBackSwap members surely know.
*We can't offer tax advice, so please consult your tax preparer to discuss this in more detail -- she or he may want to consider the cost to you when taking the deductions for Book Credits. For example, if you purchased the Credit from the Kiosk, then that price could serve as the basis of your estimate, whereas if you mailed a book to earn the Credit, then the cost of the postage, wrapping materials and gas expense to visit the Post Office could all be figured in.
