Chapter One Gives

We like to pay it forward at Chapter One and also give back to the community that has supported us for nearly 50 years.

Here are ways our customers can participate with Chapter One in giving back to our community:

  • Make a blind date with a book.  Each month we select a local non-profit to be the recipient of our blind date with a book donations.  Customers select a book wrapped in paper with clues about its contents.  They make a donation of whatever their heart desires.  100% of that donation goes to our selected non-profit.  Previous recipients include Linda Massa Youth Homes, SAFE, Emma's House and the Water Forum. In October, we are giving to SAFE, the Bitterroot's shelter for women.  SAFE is actively raising money to expand their housing facilities to meet the needs of women and children in our community who are victims of domestic abuse.
  • 20% of sponsored book club sales, like the MT Racial Equity Project Book Club and The Bitterroot Climate Action Group Book Club go to the participating organization.
  • $1 from sales of Montana Pride Stickers go to the Center and their work creating a safe and open environment for people of all sexual identities in our state.

We also offer 20% discounts to educators for materials used in their classrooms and for our homeschool community.  You can also purchase books on teacher's wish lists by searching their list using the wish list field in the 

Thank you for your support!
