Children’s Book Press is a non-profit (501c3 Federal Tax ID#: 94-2298885) independent publisher of bilingual, contemporary, first voice stories for children by and about people from the Latino, African American, Native American, Asian/Pacific Islander, and multiracial communities that helps to ensure these communities are authentically represented and not misrepresented in children’s literature. The publisher is currently seeking a board member with either a strong background in fund raising or strong ties to endowments, foundations, or other grant-making institutions.
Books published by Children’s Book Press are in high demand by teachers in bilingual, multicultural and multiracial communities. Unfortunately, Children’s Book Press does not have enough revenue on hand to reprint these high-demand books which are currently on back order. Printing presses will not print books, even those on back-order, without an up-front payment. To help raise the up-front revenue, Children’s Book Press is seeking a board member (or members) who can provide contacts and introduction to potential donors. Attendance at the board meetings in San Francisco would not be mandatory for this board member.
If you or someone you know would like to serve on the board in this capacity, please email Leslie Poynor at lpoynor@WestEd.org and please feel free to forward this post to any interested parties.
