Sponsorships Still Available

As you may know, Borderlands has been supported by a sponsorship program since 2015.  Under normal circumstances, our sponsors' annual contribution of $100 allows us to offset the difference between our annual sales and the higher wages in San Francisco.  In the current crises, that program is what has allowed us to continue paying our staff, despite the store being closed.  It is also what is allowing us to manage our expenses despite having almost no income.

There are a number of benefits to being a sponsor (most of which, sadly, are meaningless right now since our operations are so terribly curtailed) but the important thing is that being a sponsor is a crucial support for one of the few stores remaining in the United States that represents our specialties.

Any support that you wish to give Borderlands in these challenging times -- be it mail order purchases, a subscription to Libro.fm, or just rushing to the store to buy books when we can reopen -- is hugely appreciated by all of us here.  If you would like to become a sponsor as well, that would be wonderful and we'd love to have you as a member of this very special group of people.

You can get your sponsorship on-line via secure credit card payment at https://borderlands-books.com/buysponsorship.html .  You are also welcome to mail a check or call us during our limited office hours to pay by credit card.  Sponsorships are $100 per year for one individual, are good for one calendar year, and are available throughout the year.  When you get your sponsorship you'll also have the option of making an additional contribution to help cover the cost of our current operations as well as our moving costs when we relocate to our new building on Haight St. later this year.
