Apply for a Fund Raising Grant
WB Children’s Books are not profit driven. Whilly Bermudez created them in order to help others by inspiring good deeds. At WB Kids, we believe it is our responsibility to use our unique assets to support the well-being of children and their families and to enrich their learning experiences. Through the WB Kids Book Grants Program, a corporate in-kind giving initiative, WB Kids donates books annually to children and families in need. Our goal is to ensure that each of our book donations has a significant impact on fostering literacy and a joy of reading among the most at-risk young people and families, with a particular emphasis on inner-city and rural areas.
Book donations and Fundraising assistance are provided on two levels:
FUNDRAISING BOOK GRANTS
WB Kids identifies and collaborates with non-profit organizations and causes that share our social mission and are aligned to our major outreach initiatives to be the recipients of fund raising grants through the sale of our books. Selected organizations are those that demonstrate both reach and impact – reaching the greatest number of children while creatively using WB Kids books to make a significant impact on the literacy needs of traditionally underserved children.
BOOK DONATION GRANTS
Book donations are provided at the one-time request of organizations that have tax-exempt classification under sections 170 (c) or 501 (c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Requests from organizations with quality literacy programs focused on serving the needs of at-risk children or families, particularly those living in inner city or rural areas, are more likely to be granted. Donated books cannot be resold.
Telephone, facsimile or e-mail requests, incomplete applications or repeat requests (from organizations that have received a donation within the calendar year) will not be considered.
