Book Fair Foundation


If you are interested in donating to the Book Fair Foundation please see donation form under Forms heading.  
 
The Smith County Medical Society Alliance Book Fair Foundation has raised over $700,000.00 for health career scholarships in the East Texas area and we also fund other ongoing health projects in our community.
Over the past 43 years, our semi-annual Book Fair sales have allowed us to fund:
 
  • Over 1000 Health Career Scholarships
  • $25,000.00 TJC Presidential Scholarship
  • $25,000.00 UT Tyler Presidential Nursing Scholarship
  • $25,000.00 UT Tyler Masters of Nursing Scholarship
 
In 1975, Smith County physicians contributed money to build our current Book Fair building to store, sort, and sell donated books. Since then our project has grown so much that we ran out of space.  In 2012 thanks to donations from members and the community we are now housed in a more spacious and energy efficient building on 2004 Broussard Street, just down the street from our old building.  This new building has given us considerable room to grow, and has significantly enabled us to increase proceeds for our scholarships.
 
Donations are always welcome and very much appreciated.
 
Thank you for your time and generosity,
 
 
Jean Harris, SCMSA President
