Red Balloon Bookshop is happy to give back to the community that supports us. Each year, we donate hundreds of books and gift cards. We also help schools and other organizations with fundraising efforts through our bookfairs and our Authors in Schools program.
Because we receive so many donation requests, we give priority to local non-profit organizations who have a customer connection to Red Balloon and are working to promote literacy and the love of reading with kids and teens. Please submit your donation request one month before the need by date by dropping off or mailing a letter detailing the organization, the donation needs and your connection to Red Balloon Bookshop.
Requests may be sent to:
Red Balloon Bookshop
Attn: Donation Requests
891 Grand Ave.
St Paul, MN 55105
We will notify organizations that we have selected within one month of receiving your request.
