Even though the Kindle Classroom Project is not a non-profit organization (yet), I did a little accounting today, just to see how well I’m handling the books. Here’s what I found out:
In 2013, the Kindle Classroom Project had…
- 140 total donors,
- 95 Kindles donated,
- 221 ebooks donated,
- 23 physical books donated,
- 16 Kindle batteries donated,
- A few other items (like Kindle cases) donated.
Overall, the total value of donations came to $9,152.79. Not a bad year!
I’m also happy to report that I kept costs low. The total amount spent to run the Kindle Classroom Project in 2013 was $136.28, just 1.5% of total donations.
In the future (when the Project gets huge!), I may use some donated money to pay for these administrative costs. But remember, I’m a contributor, too! Plus, it doesn’t make sense for Generous Donors to pay for their own thank-you cards! That would be silly!
That is all to say that 100% of your donations made in 2013 went directly to students and their reading lives. It’s all very simple: Everything goes to Kindles, Kindle books, Kindle cases, and Kindle batteries!
Please feel free to get the word out!
