Usborne Books and EDC present the Literacy for a Lifetime 50% Grant Matching Program

Received an email recently from Kristen Caperila, an Independant Educational Consultant, regarding a good cause that can help some local schools:
Usborne Books and EDC present the Literacy for a Lifetime 50% Grant Matching Program
Are you a school or organization looking to purchase new books? Are you a business that wants to give back to the community? Do you know a Sorority or Fraternity that needs a service project? Does your Boy Scout or Girl Scout troop need a community project?

Our Literacy for a Lifetime may be the perfect program for you.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Donations are collected on behalf of a school or organization for the purpose of purchasing books and educational materials.. EDC (Educational Development Corporation) will match those donations with 50 % in books! Donations are tax deductible. For example a local business wants to help out a day care center. That business along with the daycare raise funds for the purchase of new books. Their fundraising efforts total $1,000.00 which will result in $1,500.00 in Usborne books & materials for the daycare!

The organization receiving the books has full control over their selection of Usborne Books. Bookplates may be placed inside each book to recognize your business's effort. The matching grant program can be used as often as donations/grants become available. There is a $200.00 minimum to receive the 50% grant matching portion, but there is no cap on the amount that can be donated or matched!

I would be more than happy to meet with your group to show you our incredible books and explain the program in more detail!
