Donation Policy


At House of Anansi Press and Groundwood Books, we are proud to support our community through donations and sponsorships. Each year, we donate hundreds of books to help support some truly amazing organizations and events including the Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada and the Toronto Rotary Club Special Needs Children’s Christmas Fundraiser.

To meet eligibility, applicants must represent a charitable non-profit organization and the event must directly benefit literacy in our community. To ensure that your donation request reaches the appropriate person and is attended to, please submit donation requests via our online form.

Due to the large number of requests we receive, we require a minimum of one month’s notice to process each request. Regretfully, we can only guarantee a response to successful requests for support. We will do our best to aid you in your fundraising efforts within our donation guidelines.


We try to support as many different groups as possible. In some cases we are unable to make a donation either because we have reached our donation goal for the year or because the request does not meet the criteria for eligibility.

When we are unable to fulfill a donation request, we are happy to offer discounts on bulk purchases (10 copies or more of a single title) as an alternative. For further information about placing an order, please email our customer service representative.

Thank you and happy reading!
