We have some fantastic partners, but we continue to need more as we expand. Here are ways your company can get involved:
Your company can invest directly to support Room to Read's greatest need or you can earmark the donation to a specific program or country. If you are interested in making a direct contribution to Room to Read, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Corporate or Foundation Support
You can suggest Room to Read for corporate funding, or connect our staff with the right people within the foundation department. We are always looking to expand and diversify our funding base, and we would welcome introductions to any corporate foundation that is interested in supporting educational projects in the developing world. Please contact us via email at email@example.com.
You can donate products or services to support Room to Read. For additional information about donating new children's books, please read our Book Donations page. To donate other in-kind gifts, such as construction products, software, hotel rooms and airfares, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cause-Related Marketing Promotions
You can donate a percentage of your company's product revenues to Room to Read which can be beneficial to improve PR, increase sales and enhance brand loyalty. Of course we look to make sure that the alliance is strategic and mutually agreeable and we also ask that an agreement be signed that grants permission for the use of our name and logo. Should you be interested in an affiliation with us, please review our Promotional Partnership Requirements. Please contact us via email at email@example.com.
Retailers can allow their customers to add a contribution to their purchases through a point-of-sale which help generate customer and employee goodwill. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org should this be of interest.
Room to Read holds a number of events through our chapter network and they are always in need of companies (local or global) who would be willing to provide sponsorships to help underwrite their costs. For more information about sponsoring a chapter event, please contact email@example.com.
You can help Room to Read through matching gift or payroll deduction programs. This can be a great benefit as well to your company's public relations and employee/employer relations. Please read our Matching Donations page for more information.
Many individuals working in both small and large corporations have launched fundraising campaigns to support one of Room to Read's projects. Visit our Sponsor a Project page for more information on the projects you can support.
Room to Read benefits from new and used book drives. To donate NEW children's books, please visit our our Book Donations page for more information. Working with our partner, Better World Books, you can run a USED book drive in your offices to benefit Room to Read. Your company can collect used books that will then be sold by Better World Books with all profits (after their expenses) coming to Room to Read. Better World Books handles all the logistics of receiving and sorting, tracking, and selling the books - all you and your company have to do is collect them!
