Our Goals

As an organization, we are committed to continued growth and professional development.

Book Drives

We collect books to then sort out the old and redistribute gently used, relevant books to communities in need.

Free Book Fairs

We go into schools and host a free book fair. Children self select their own books and every child leaves with books at no cost.

At Home Library

We work with partners to get enough books for children to begin their own library at home.

Books to Adults

We get books to adults in shelters, subsidized senior housing, and through a prison book nonprofit.

          Develop strategic partnerships with key community organizations in order to ensure maximum reach and efficacy.

          Continue to expand programs and partnerships with schools to ensure that we are reaching our target market.

          Goal #4

          Develop and implement communications, marketing and evaluation efforts to expand awareness and track MSB’s community impact.

          Building Administrative & Operations Support

          Goal #1

          Develop policies and procedures to ensure the efficient operations of the staff, board and overall organization.

          Goal #2

          Establish a budget and financial management system that allows MSB’s board and staff to be proactive in ensuring the short- and long-term success of the organization.

          Securing Funding & Financial Resources

          Goal #1

          Focus fundraising efforts on key constituencies that we believe are likely to support MSB, most notably: educators; arts supporters; foundations active in the areas of education, youth development, etc; and individuals who have connections to the Founder and/or board members.
