Donors pay list price for the books they give teachers through BookMentors. A small percentage of the cost of each book goes towards operational expenses. BookMentors aims to become a self-sustaining nonprofit.
Our ability to get books into the hands of those who need them depends on sustainability. When donors contribute books at “list price,” our vendor (Baker & Taylor) sells them to us at a discount. Our goal is that this built-in feature will enable us to more efficiently meet our operating expenses, and to focus more effectively on our purpose.
