Our Approach

3 high-level steps to making impact

Step 1 

Leverage deep-rooted, empathy-driven local insights to align our annual focus 

For example, which groups are in the most dire need of assistance? What areas are overlooked by other non-profit organizations?

Step 2 

Vet and partner with local, on-the-ground organizations to drive outsized impact

We consider every aspect of local organizations when deciding who to partner with, including track record, current goals, open projects, and team fit.

Step 3 

Work hand-in-hand with local partner organizations to execute

While the local org is in direct contact with the students we are helping, Books of Joy directly adds value by providing extensive strategy support, fundraising, and operational management.
