Barnes & Noble Corporate Contributions Program

We seek to share funding sources for the consideration of local BDPA chapters or other nonprofit organizations. BETF is willing to partner with any interested BDPA chapter or other IT-based nonprofit as per our documented funding process.

Here is information about the Barnes and Noble corporate contributions program.

Eligibility: Donations criteria we consider include those that:

  • Reach a wider audience
  • Serve the greater good both nationally and locally
  • Offer opportunities for in-store events
  • Are able to work with Barnes & Noble and other appropriate sponsors on promotion and execution of the program
  • Are fully detailed and submitted in writing on your organization's letterhead

Barnes & Noble is also committed to literary-based sponsorships and partners with organizations that focus their core businesses on higher learning, literacy and the arts. These partnerships will foster not only community good will, but also promote our brand. Sponsors can be both for-profit and non-profit organizations. A suitable sponsorship is one that benefits Barnes & Noble and the communities it serves. Funding is limited.

Purpose: Barnes & Noble's corporate contributions program supports non-profit organizations that focus on literacy, the arts or education (K - 12).
