As its name implies, Sabre's Reduced-Cost Purchase Program is a means whereby US and overseas non-profit organizations can purchase educational materials (in selected subject areas) at significantly reduced prices for educational institutions and professional organizations in countries where the Foundation is active. The purchase option focuses primarily on reference and English-language teaching materials which are often difficult to obtain through publisher donations. Sabre has negotiated favorable discount terms with a number of publishers in these subject areas. Organizations wishing to purchase materials apply directly to Sabre, which places the orders with the publishers. The books are then delivered to the purchaser or to Sabre's own warehouse, for shipment overseas.
The Reduced-Cost Purchase Program complements Sabre's Book Donation Program. Established in 1986, the Book Donation Program is one of the largest donors of books to Eastern Europe, FSU and selected countries in other regions of the world. Over the past twelve years, Sabre has sent over three million books to this region, benefiting thousands of educational, professional and cultural institutions, and countless individual recipients.
