The Scholastic Book Grants Program is a corporate in-kind giving initiative that provides high-quality reading materials to children in need. The Company's goal is to ensure that each of its book donations has a significant impact on fostering literacy.
Each year the company donates millions of books to organizations large and small.
Book grants are distributed on two levels:
- Large-scale donations of 100,000 books or more are awarded to organizations, identified by Scholastic, that can demonstrate how they will creatively use the donation to meet children's literacy needs.The issuing of these grants is directed by the Company and is not in response to unsolicited requests.
- Small-scale (unsolicited) donations of 500-1000 books are awarded to literacy organizations that operate under sections 170 (c) or 501 (c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.

Due to the overwhelming number of requests received, Scholastic is unable to grant every worthy request.
