Run a Textbook Drive

Raise Funds and Support Multiple Causes.

Are you looking to raise funds on campus with a club or charity? We’ve worked with over 75 campus initiatives and helped provide over $100,000 to organizations that run textbook drives!

Run a fundraiser on your campus with Textbooks for Change. A portion of the proceeds from the drive go to your initiative AND you support campuses in East Africa.
