Help for Texas Booksellers

The Book Industry Charitable Foundation is a reputable company that has been helping booksellers with funeral costs, homelessness, and other personal crisis for over 20 years. Any booksellers in Texas who have lost their homes or possessions because of Hurricane Harvey should contact this organization HERE for assistance.

The Book Industry Charitable Foundation (Binc) grew out of the wish of bookstore employees to establish a fund to help their colleagues experiencing an unexpected financial crisis.  As a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, we are dedicated to assisting bookstore employees across the country in their time of greatest need. The Foundation typically helps brick and mortar bookstore employees who have a personal financial need arising from severe hardship and/or emergency circumstances.

Since our inception in 1996, the Foundation has given over $5 million in tax-free financial assistance grants and higher education scholarships.  Whether you’re a bookseller, a friend of the book industry or someone looking to make a difference, we hope you will take the opportunity to learn more about the Book Industry Charitable Foundation.
