The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to foster public appreciation of children’s books and to support the vibrant community of people who create and promote them.
|For the first time ever, SCBWI is participating in GivingTuesday to benefit creators with disabilities. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 with the simple idea of encouraging people to do good and has since grown into a global movement inspiring hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
This December 1, we ask that any donations you give to the SCBWI be tagged with #GivingTuesday (in the PayPal or check memo) if you’d like them dedicated to scholarships, grants, and accessibility resources for people with disabilities.
