7th Annual Better World Books Literacy Grants for Nonprofits
Better World Books is thrilled to provide you with a chance to fund a project which will make an impact in your community.


Please answer all of the questions in this form. Take the time and space that you need to answer the questions completely but please note that each entry box does have character limits.

We recommend building your answers in your preferred word processing program, then copying and pasting your responses into this form. 

Submit your completed application via SurveyGizmo by 4:00 PM ET on March 31, 2017. You will receive an email confirmation that your application has been submitted. No other forms of submission will be accepted. Incomplete forms or late submissions will not be accepted or considered.

More information about requirements and timelines can be found here. Our Literacy Grants for Nonprofits are open to nonprofits in the US, Canada, and internationally. 

Please keep the following criteria in mind as you complete the application:
  • Where questions have multiple parts, be sure to address all parts. Omissions make it difficult to evaluate your application.
  • Projects should address the literacy needs of the under-served populations in their community. Literacy needs are defined by broadly identifying, understanding, interpreting, creating, communicating, and computing information to live a more fulfilling and productive life.
  • Organizations may pitch only one project each, with a maximum award of $5,000. Please be sure to clearly outline the project elements that require the requested funds.
  • Projects that will have a measurable and long term impact on an under-served population and will continue to operate after grant funds have been utilized will be looked upon favorably.

Better World Books looks forward to reviewing applications that bring a fresh and inspired approach to challenging issues.
