Wish you could offer your employees more benefits?
Compete with other retailers to attract the best and the brightest?
Let the Book Industry Charitable Foundation help!
Bookstore owners across the country have made Binc their own. The Book Industry Charitable Foundation is your Foundation and as such, stands ready to serve your store as an additional employee benefit. When hiring new employees and sharing the benefits of working for your store, share how Binc is there for them by virtue of their employment with you.
The Binc Foundation provides financial assistance to brick and mortar bookstore employees working full-time or part-time who demonstrate a personal financial need arising from severe hardship and/or emergency circumstances. The Foundation typically assists with needs arising from many qualifying life-events including:
- Domestic Violence
- Funeral Expenses
- Homelessness Prevention
- Loss of Household Income, due to:
- death in the household
- divorce or separation
- job loss of spouse or partner
- emergency child or elder care
- Serious Medical Expenses
- Utility Shut-off Prevention
Binc can assist any bookstore in setting up Payroll Withholding for employees, letting employees support other booksellers in need with a small donation amount (as little as $1 per pay period) to support Binc.
May is the month of Binc’s Campaign to Sustain effort so I encourage each store consider becoming a sustaining donor at $20 per month. This is a great way to support an organization that can hopefully assist you in attracting great booksellers. Plus any store that does become a sustaining donor at $20 a month, or more, before the end of May, will receive 240 B3! Points.
