When we have printed copies of the past year’s spiral-bound Stylebook left in stock, we give them to organizations that cannot afford to buy them, such as journalism camps, conferences for minority journalists and high schools with little or no school newspaper budget.
AP provides the books for free, and the organization need only pay for the shipping.
We evaluate each request based on need, the population served by the donation and the number of books we have in inventory. We make every attempt to be fair and equitable in our donations, but with a limited supply of books to give, we will not be able to honor every request.
Unfortunately we sold out of the 2014 Stylebook in March, well ahead of the May launch of the 2015 book, so we do not have inventory to donate this year.
