The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree  

A Book Passage Program for Kids

Thanks to our customers' generosity, the Book Passage Giving Tree has been donating over 1,000 books each year to children in need in the Bay Area. This year the need is even greater, as more organizations are hoping we can deliver books for the children they serve. 

You can donate to the Giving Tree right here on this page (please see the donate-link below). The Book Passage staff will then choose the appropriate books and match them to a child in the program. (If you prefer, you could come into one of our stores and pick a tag with a child's name and maybe a suggested book from one of our Giving Trees at the register.)

The names of the children are supplied to us by several community organziations, and the list of community groups is growing. These organizations include Side by Side (formerly Sunny Hills Services), West Marin & Inverness Schools, the Center for Domestic Peace, the Homeless Pre-Natal Program, Performing Stars, Next Generation Scholars, Parents Place, Tomales Elementary, Tandem, Canal Children’s Center, Venetia Valley School, Women’s Daytime Drop in Center, Fairfax-San Anselmo Children’s Centerand the Parent Services Project.

If you want to want to make a gift in support of The Giving Tree program, please go to the "donation amount" box below and enter the amount of your gift. (the box is kind of small, but it will hold a gift of any amount!).

Thanks to our customers' generosity, the Book Passage Giving Tree has donated over 1,000 books each year to children in need in the Bay Area. We hope to expand this program to reach even more children. 

You can donate to the Giving Tree through our website. The Book Passage staff will then choose the appropriate books and match them to a child in the program. Or you are invited to come into one of our stores and pick a tag with a child's name from one of our Giving Trees at the registers and choose a book to donate to that child.

The names of the children are supplied to us by several community organziations. These organizations include Side by Side (formerly Sunny Hills Services), West Marin & Inverness Schools, the Center for Domestic Peace, the Homeless Pre-Natal Program, Performing Stars, Next Generation Scholars, Parents Place, Tomales Elementary, Tandem, and the Parent Services Project.

This year, we are also collecting books for local students in need.  We are so grateful for your generosity — the greater amount we are able to raise will allow us to partner with more classrooms.
