ABOUT

The Book Fair Foundation is comprised of a group of civic-minded people who work together collecting books to support community charities, carrying on the good works the group began in 1970.

We work all year collecting books, media and findings and resell those during our annual Book Fair held during the second weekend in November at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds.

Money raised from the sale of books is donated to selected Dayton-area nonprofit organizations. In 2017, proceeds from the sale will benefit the Artemis CenterCaesar’s Ford Theatre and Discover Classical -Dayton Public Radio.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, incorporated in the State of Ohio.

PRESSING MATTERS

Exciting times here at the Book Fair Foundation as we review applications coming in for next year’s beneficiaries.

Dayton Book Fair envisions our relationship with each year’s beneficiaries as a partnership in which the organizations get to learn a little about each other and the recipients find out just what goes into raising money by selling used books. (Hint: we really do love books.) To that end, we ask each of the chosen organizations to contribute 40 hours of volunteer effort towards the sale.

If you know of an organization that ought to be considered, remind them to check out the instructions for how to apply at this link! Before December 31st!

We will host a reception on Friday, February 2nd to present checks to this year’s very worthy beneficiaries (Artemis Center, Caesar’s Ford Theatre Co. and Discover Classical – Dayton Public Radio– we will miss you guys!) and to announce our three new beneficiaries for 2018. Watch this space for time and place.
