Non-Profits

Discounts

River Lights offers a 20% discount to non-profit organizations on most titles plus a 7% tax exemption. Even higher discounts for large quantities of single titles! You will find our prices competitive with all other bookstores and even wholesalers. Our staff has been working with non-profit organizations for more than two decades. We focus on getting the books you need for your group at the best possible price. We understand you often need a cost estimate before ordering.

It’s very helpful if you can supply the following information:

  • Title of book & author
  • Number of copies needed
  • Preference for hardcover or paperback
  • If a particular edition is needed (the ISBN is helpful)
  • Your due date for needing materials

If you do not state a preference, we will try to fill you order in the most cost-efficient way possible. If your organization pays by credit card we will decrease the discount by 3% to cover the cost of credit card processing fees.
