Meet the Champions
The Champions of BookSpring are a passionate and deeply committed group of contributors who share a vision of a community where all children are instilled with a lifelong love of reading.
Champions share their gifts in service to our mission by providing our organization with their philanthropic support, their advocacy for regional resources, connections to colleagues or experts, and by working to raise community awareness of BookSpring and the importance of reading and reading aloud in Central Texas.
You automatically become a member if your total annual giving year-to-date to BookSpring is $1,000 or more. You can make a gift anytime online, through the mail, or by phone. To be sure you are invited to the next BookSpring Champion event, please note in the text field “I would like to join the Champions.”
For more information, contact Associate Director Jill Gonzalez, (512) 472-1791 x 104.
