Bookshare is the thriving community it is today thanks to the enthusiasm and dedication of all of you—members, parents, teachers, mentors, volunteers, partners, and friends. We’re so grateful for your continuous support and can’t wait to bring the gift of reading and educational opportunities to even more people. Please help us bring Bookshare to others who need our services by supporting our Silicon Valley Gives (SVGives) fundraiser on May 5, 2015.
For those of you who may not have heard of it, SVGives is a community-wide day of giving hosted by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. On Tuesday, May 5, Bookshare’s parent nonprofit, Benetech, is joining the Silicon Valley Community Foundation for 24 hours of giving to expand Bookshare’s reach.
We have an exciting update to our SVGives campaign: a donor match! All gifts to Bookshare on May 5 will be generously matched by the Newcomb Foundation and the Krishnan-Shah Family (up to $85,000). This means that your gift to Bookshare will go twice as far in changing the lives of more people, in the United States and abroad.
You may be receiving communications from our team with an appeal for financially supporting Bookshare on SVGives. Please take a look and give whatever you can to allow us to continue our work and do even more so that everyone has access to books and information, and a fair chance to succeed at school and beyond.
Support Bookshare on SVGives! All gifts to Bookshare between now and 11:59 PM on May 5 count for SVGives Day and will double their impact.
Thank you in advance for your support!
