At Kidsbooks, we are proud to support our community through donations and sponsorships of many charitable events and organizations. By becoming active in programmes that support education and literacy among children, we feel that we can do our utmost to make a difference in the community. Every year we donate thousands of dollars to worthy organizations such as the Vancouver International Writers’ Festival and One To One Literacy.In addition we provide gift certificates to numerous organizations including schools to assist your fund-raising efforts. To meet eligibility, applicants must represent a non-profit and/or charitable organization and the event must directly benefit literacy in our community. Applicants should submit a letter of request by email. This will ensure that your request will get to the right person and will be attended to. We will respond by email to all requests within one week. (Please do NOT drop off a letter to the store.) Include the following in your submission: name and description of your organization, details of your event including the date of the event, and complete contact information, including email. For our Edgemont in the Village store: please drop off a letter in the store for the Manager to look over.We try to support as many different groups as possible. We would appreciate your taking the time to verify that your school or organization has not already requested assistance for the same event in the same year.Due to the large number of requests we receive, we require your request as far in advance as possible, with a minimum of three weeks’ notice. We will do our best to support your requests within our donation guidelines and aid you in your fundraising efforts.
