Books for Schools

“Books for Schools” is a charitable scheme set up by SAGE in 2002. Under the scheme, SAGE employees are invited to nominate a school that they would like to receive a donation from SAGE to buy books. Each year, up to 24 schools are chosen to receive donations of £500. In 2009 alone, SAGE donated over £11,000 to schools around the world.

The aims of the books for schools initiative are:

  • To donate money for books to schools in need, in the local community, around the UK and abroad.
  • To support education and raise awareness of the pleasures of reading and to promote a love of books.
  • To provide a link between SAGE employees and schools in their community and around the world.

Since the scheme began in 2002, SAGE has donated money to over 100 schools, including St Monica's School in Hackney, Woodlands High School in Cardiff, Hope Flowers School in Gaza, and the Wa School on the Thai/Burmese border.
