Better World Books Partnership

Better World Book Drives for Better Lives

Help break the cycle of poverty through education and literacy... while raising funds for your chapter!

Better World Books

Sigma Tau Delta partners with Better World Books (BWB) to provide an ongoing opportunity for chapters to participate in biannual book drives during the fall and spring semesters. Last academic year, over 50 Sigma Tau Delta chapters collected nearly 50,000 books from campus book drives!

BWB collects and sells books online to fund literacy initiatives worldwide. BWB will never throw a book away! Textbooks that cannot be sold are donated to Books For Africa, and if no reuse option is available, BWB recycles. This campus program provides each chapter an opportunity to foster global literacy, while at the same time raising funds for their chapter. BWB will partner with every chapter to host an on-campus book drive. Five percent of the net sales of the books collected and sent in by Sigma Tau Delta chapters will be donated to benefit a literacy initiative in the convention host city.

The BWB book drive is a turnkey operation. It supplies promotional materials, packing supplies, and covers all shipping costs.
