With even more budget cuts looming in 2012 and the need for school supplies continuing to grow, Cash4Books.net will increase its donation match to 100% during the month of February.
“We are truly excited to be able to contribute to such an important cause,” says Jim Smith, CEO of Cash4Books.net. “Our schools are obviously facing some pretty serious challenges right now, and DonorsChoose.org is performing a crucial service. While we have supported this organization for several years, we felt that we needed to step up even more right now.”
Any customer selling at least $7 worth of books to Cash4Books is eligible to donate the value of their buyback order to DonorsChoose.org. Once Cash4Books receives the books, the customer will be sent a DonorsChoose.org gift card for the value of their donation, along with a check or PayPal payment for any balance. The customer can then visit DonorsChoose.org and decide which project he or she wants to support. At the end of the month, Cash4Books will add up all customer donations and match that amount 100%.
With the continuing challenges faced by schools today, organizations like DonorsChoose.org will continue to play a vital role in ensuring that the nation’s students have the supplies and tools needed to achieve academic success and the Cash4Books.net 100% donation matching program will provide even more support for this mission.
