We have some fantastic partners, but we continue to need more as we expand. Here are ways your company can get involved:

Direct Donations

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 donate@roomtoread.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 donate@roomtoread.org.

Gifts-In-Kind

You can donate products or services to support Room to Read. To donate other in-kind gifts, such as construction products, software, hotel rooms and airfares, contact gifts.in.kind@roomtoread.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 donate@roomtoread.org.

Consumer Donations

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 marketing@roomtoread.org should this be of interest.

Sponsorship

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 chapters@roomtoread.org.

Employee Involvement

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.

Corporate Fundraisers

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.
