Publish a book for charity

Hi Everyone,

I have a dear friend of mine who wrote a children's book. I helped him put the layout together and it is basically ready to go. He passed away a few years ago from pancreatic cancer. What I want to do is complete the project and donate all proceeds to Pancreatic Cancer research or some affiliated charity in his name. But I have no clue where to start. Can anyone offer any advice?

I have attached a pdf of where the book was left off.

My sole purpose in doing this is to honor Joe and to see his project through.

I came across this thread quite by accident. I think it is a beautiful idea.

I have no idea how to go about it, but I want to do something similar for my father.

Maybe I can get this thread going and we can get some answers?

Or if you figured out how to do what you were hoping, please share how you did it. :)

I'm searching for similar information. I can't find any FAQ re: setting up a listing that would reflect proceeds to be donated.

Hello- Any book can have their proceeds donated to charity. The easiest way to do this is to list the charity's PayPal email under your Profit Settings page.  

We don't differentiate which books' profits go to the author versus a charity, so we recommend including this information in your book's description. To edit your book details, navigate to the Dashboard > Sell My Book > Book Details. 

Hope this helps! If you have additional questions on how to do this, feel free to open a support ticket:
