The Opportunity Project 2017

This holiday season, Watermark and TOP would like to put books into the hands of 700 preschool children!

The Opportunity Project (TOP) is a charitable organization devoted to early education for children living in poverty. They believe that all children can learn, regardless of their economic status. Along with its many public and private partners, it is dedicated to offering the high educational opportunities to needy children from birth to five years of age. To purchase a book for a child attending TOP, simply talk to a Watermark bookseller, or place an order online here. We will collect donations until December 9.

Please consider donating either a book or money towards a book for our annual book drive for TOP. When you donate, you'll receive a wrapped book while supplies last. Not only will you receive a wrapped gift from Watermark Books when you donate to TOP, but you'll also be entered in a drawing to receive our "TOP SHELF" of books. Come by the store to see which books are included in the prize drawing.
