Did you know that Year-End Giving Supports BookSpring Direct? Through BookSpring Direct, families throughout our community have applied and received curated packages of books, materials, and activities in the mail to keep kids reading at home.
Access to books has been even more difficult for many families in our community during this pandemic. Your end-of-year gift of $25, $50, or $100 or more can help bridge the gap and sustain a flow of books to families and children for the coming year. Don’t forget that this year only, you can deduct up to $600 on your non-itemized taxes for charitable contributions.
“I just wanted to let you know that we received the books. Thank you so much. My girls were so happy!” – Mom, BookSpring Direct Recipient
In an effort to support parents and caregivers in building reading habits at home, they are also invited to opt into weekly text messages or a monthly bilingual newsletter for tips, downloadable books, and other free resources to promote reading at home.
Like so many nonprofits, BookSpring pivoted its services and program models throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to your generous ongoing support we’ve mailed books to families in 99 zip codes.
Since March of 2020, BookSpring and our literacy partners have been able to put 275,230 books into 119,989 children’s hands.
