2014 TOTY Tribute Book Fundraiser Kicks Off Today

October 8, 2013 | The Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) is now accepting ad submissions for its 2014 TOTY Tribute Book – the official take-home program for guests attending the Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards ceremony on February 15, 2014.

The annually published Tribute Book is TIF’s most important fundraising vehicle of the year, with each ad directly supporting the Foundation by funding its ability to give toys and grants to worthy children’s charities across the country and around the world. Last year’s Tribute Book fundraiser allowed TIF to improve the lives of nearly 2 million children in need.
“Proceeds from the Tribute Book enable us to donate toys to kids in low-income communities, fund our national partnerships, distribute toys to military families and foster children coping with difficult transitions, and provide grant-funding to community charities across the country that teach children through play,” said Jean Butler, executive director of TIF.  

The commemorative publication will feature award nominees as well as past TOTY highlights. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowable under the law. Donors will be listed online, in the Tribute Book itself, and in TIF’s Annual Report.

Interested parties may complete the ad reservation form online or download the .pdf version. The deadline for all ad placements is January 14, 2014; priority will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Questions may be directed to tifinfo@toyindustryfoundation.org (646.454.5581).

Information about additional TOTY sponsorship opportunities is available online. Event tickets will go on sale in mid-October.The TOTY Awards gala annually honors the toy industry’s best and brightest toys, brands and individuals.
