About Free The Textbooks
FreeTheTextbooks is a nonprofit movement to make textbooks affordable for 21 million college students.
With your help, we will
- raise awareness of the problem.
- promote an advocacy campaign and petition to bring pressure on university administrations, departments, and faculty to change their policies, so as to reduce the financial burden on students.
- show students the best prices on purchases, rentals, and buy-backs.
- promote the Open Source textbook movement, which makes digital textbooks free and printed ones dirt cheap.
- provide offers from partners will provide students with funding for textbooks.
ClassWish is the only nonprofit that lets anybody contribute to fund any type of resource for any K-12 school or teacher in the country. We are now turning attention to the crisis of college textbook affordability, as well.
