Individual Donors

Support from individuals is critical to the ongoing success of An Open Book.  We welcome donations of any size.  Should you wish to donate in someone’s honor, we will happily provide them a note to that effect.

If you are interested in seeing the work we do, contact us about attending an event by sending an email to info@anopenbookfound.org.

When you or your book group or other small organization donates $5,000 or more, An Open Book will acknowledge your generosity on a set of bookplates. Please be sure to supply to wording of your dedication with your donation. An example of the bookplate is to the right.

Corporate & Foundation Donors

Support from corporate and foundation donors is critical to the ongoing success of An Open Book. Our programs are for low-income children from early childhood through high school. While all of our events promote literacy, they also address specific curricular goals including ELL, S.T.E.M., Common Core, and fine arts.

Given the variety and number of An Open Book events, we are happy to match an event(s) with your philanthropic goals.

If your staff are interested in seeing the work we do, contact us about attending an event by sending an email to info@anopenbookfound.org.

When you donate $5,000 or more, you may choose to have your corporate or foundation logo included on a set of our bookplates. Please see the example on the right side of this page.
