Hello, Just like the name says it is a book sale set to raise money for a charity. It could be expanded to include book signings, rare book exhibits and reading programs. In most areas these are held by Libraries and the funds go to buying more books or reading programs for children or adult education efforts for the illiterate. The funds are usually provided on a local basis by the Library or through civic organizations like the Lions Club, Rotary Club, or other civic organizations. The only possible of Federal funding or grants is it were set up either as organization to promote reading and was more on a traveling basis to promote reading through school programs or maybe a swap a book event. A swap a book event is where you bring a book you have already read and exchange it for a book someone else brings. Federal funds may also be available for more localized events for areas such as New Orleans that may be re-building libraries or poor areas of the country where the literacy rate is considerably below the national average. When seeking funds don't overlook private trust such as the Pew's, Rockefellers, Ford and Recently the Bill and Melinda Gates Trust. I am including an article from the IRS that lists some of the largest charitable trust. Thank You Tom Please click accepts.
