Tribute Book Fundraiser Extended to Jan. 15

January 13, 2014 | The deadline to submit an ad for inclusion in the 2014 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards Tribute Book has been extended to Wednesday, January 15th. 

As the official take-home program for guests attending the TOTY Awards this February, the Tribute Book is the Toy Industry Foundation’s (TIF) most critical fundraiser of the year. Each ad placed in the book directly supports the Foundation’s work to annually deliver brand new toys and games to millions of children in need across the nation and around the world.

Tribute Book ads are a wonderful way for toy companies to promote their brands in front of an audience of toy industry luminaries, executives, and rising stars,” said Marisa Medina, TIF manager. 

The ad reservation form can be completed and submitted online or downloaded in .pdf format and faxed to TIF. 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. Questions may be directed to TIF manager Marisa Medina (646.454.5581).

Information about additional TOTY sponsorship opportunities is available online

In 2013, the Toy Industry Foundation brought toys to more than three million kids who were underprivileged or sick; living on military bases or within the foster care system; and enduring many other difficult life situations. For more information about the Foundation’s work, visit
