Funds4Books is an innovative online donation program to raise money for districts, schools, libraries, and classrooms. Many popular fundraisers send kids to sell door to door and parents to take catalogs to work. After all that effort, the fundraising companies often keep a significant percentage of the earnings. With Funds4Books, the beneficiary will receive 100% of the donated funds to purchase anything on Mackin.com. Mackin’s fundraising coordinator partners with fundraising leaders to provide one-to-one support every step of the way, and Mackin handles all of the bookkeeping. Plus, Mackin provides free MARC records, free custom shelf-ready processing, and free shipping within the United States. Choose Funds4Books for your next fundraising project!
