Thank you for thinking of us for a donation for your fund-raising event. BookPeople of Moscow is your independent, locally-owned community bookstore. We rely completely on our local customers to shop at our store so we can stay open, pay the bills, and pay our employees. If the community supports us, we can in turn support you.
We do not make donations to individuals or families, for-profit businesses, or non-local organizations. Our first priority in giving is always for literacy, especially children's literacy, and the fine arts, and we believe in supporting the non-profit organizations, groups, and causes that our customers support. If your organization asks for a donation from us, and we are unable to find your board members or staff members in our customer files, we are unlikely to make a contribution to your organization, even though we appreciate the good work that you do in the community.
Our usual donation is a small bag of advanced reading copies that your organization can use as prizes or auction items. We are generally not able to make cash donations or buy advertising. Thank you!
