Is your nonprofit suffering from a shortfall in funding? Green Ribbon Books can help. We invite you to become our partner organization and to tap into a new revenue stream. With our help, a box full of books in good condition becomes a cash donation to be used wherever your organization sees fit.  We are professional - and local - booksellers who know where to sell books for the best price.


What we can do for you

There is more than one way to partner with Green Ribbon Books.  We are looking for both long-term and event non-profit partners.

1.  Long Term Partner

Green Ribbon Books is looking for long-term nonprofit partners.  There are benefits to both of us from having a partnership.  We are able to raise funds for your nonprofit by receiving book donations in your name and sharing the received profits.   We will work with you to provide the level of partnership you are interested in. The accrued revenues will be divided on a monthly basis or whatever works best for your organization.   

2. Event Partnering

Book drives are a good way to infuse some capital into your nonprofit on a one-time or ongoing basis.  Most people have unused books they would be happy to donate.  Your organization can solicit book donations from its supporters.  The books will be sold online and at our book sales, providing immediate profits.  Once Green Ribbon Books receives the book donations, we will sort them and write a check immediately - no need to wait until the books are sold.  For a small amount of work on the part of your nonprofit there is the potential for a large return.

For organizations that are already holding book sales, we can help you raise more money by pulling some of the books from the sale and selling them online.  Green Ribbon Books has partnered with Central Christian Church in Billings, Montana, AAUW in Billings, Montana, and book sales in Billings and Missoula to help increase book sale revenue.  Because of our expertise in finding the best price for a book, many that would have sold in a book sale for a dollar or two command much higher prices.

Green Ribbon Books also donates cash to selected charities from the proceeds of our book sales.  In the past, we have donated to:

  • National MS Society
  • Billings Gateway House
  • Missoula Interfaith Council
  • Missoula Sustainable Business Council
  • The Watershed Education Network
  • Make a Wish Foundation
  • American Red Cross
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Billings Food Bank
  • Wounded Warrior Project
  • The Red Cross
  • The Periodic Paralysis Organization
  • Central Asia Institute
  • The Poverello Center
  • Missoula Food Bank
  • Watson Children's Shelter
  • Living Art of Montana
  • Mountain Home Montana
  • Humane Society of Montana
