OUR CONCEPT<br />

What if there was a fundraising program that wouldn’t cost you anything and you didn’t have to<br />

devote a lot of hard work, time and effort in implementing it, and with no staff-time requirement<br />

from your organization at all? Does this sound too good? With <strong>HPN</strong> Books and Ledge<strong>Media</strong>, this<br />

is actually true.<br />

<strong>HPN</strong> Books presents a fundraising concept for both promotion of your message in a beautiful<br />

unforgettable format as well as a unique alternative method of income generation that doesn’t<br />

compete with your traditional methods but actually supports them.<br />

The concept can be applied with any of our <strong>HPN</strong> Books’ Historic/Community Heritage, Cityscape,<br />

or Commemorative book-series templates as well as customizing a book to your own organization<br />

or association needs.<br />

The following organizations have utilized our unique book program:<br />

• Historical Preservation Societies<br />

• City and County Governments<br />

• Chambers of Commerce<br />

• Trade Associations<br />

• Convention & Visitor Bureaus<br />

• Nonprofit Organizations<br />

• Colleges & Universities<br />

• Hospitals<br />

• Museums<br />

• Public Libraries, and more!<br />

Beyond Fundraising, our stunning coffee-table books are an ideal medium for a City or State<br />

to promote Tourism and Economic Development, and institutions such as Museums, Charitable<br />

Organizations, and Universities to showcase & enhance both their mission and their messages.<br />

SHARING THE HERITAGE<br />

The Ledge<strong>Media</strong> team will conduct a dignified and professional fundraising campaign within<br />

your community or association to recruit additional content for the book in the form of sponsored<br />

stories which our professional staff writers will interview, write and edit their contributions to<br />

the book.<br />

We strive to find sponsors that will actually support your overall editorial and make for a more<br />

interesting and thicker, heavier book.<br />

“You earn royalties during the book building process!”<br />

invaluable local historical narratives and utilizing them to raise funds for the organization<br />

preserving them.<br />

ABOUT THE PUBLISHER<br />

<strong>HPN</strong>books was conceived around the idea of an ultra-high-quality hardcover chronicle of a city or organization’s<br />

past. These exceptional books were also designed to raise funds for a partnering organization. As of 2020,<br />

<strong>HPN</strong>books has published more than 200 titles, while raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for its many<br />

partnering groups.<br />

Now a woman-owned company, Ledge <strong>Media</strong> has further developed their network and incorporated many<br />

new modern technologies including embedding video into printed materials. Ledge <strong>Media</strong> is a leading-edge<br />

multimedia company, now headquartered in Jackson, Wyoming, with its parent company, FRE-Enterprises. Its<br />

origins can be traced back to 1973, where <strong>HPN</strong>books, based in San Antonio, Texas, was helping businesses<br />

and historical societies tell their stories in the most compelling ways possible.<br />

TESTIMONIALS<br />

Here is what our customers have been saying about us!<br />

“We have been so excited to see the Davis County On the Move book! When we received the<br />

shipment we couldn’t have been more pleased. The photography is stunning which compliments<br />

the writing and history. You and the other contributors have created a masterpiece!<br />

Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put forth to complete this. We are proud and<br />

excited to share your talents.”<br />

- Davis County Commission<br />

“I wanted to let you know that we received our Coastal Visions of Galveston County coffee table<br />

books early last week - and it’s magnificent! Thank you for all your efforts in putting together<br />

such a beautifully produced book, as you promised it would be.”<br />

- Vice President Marketing, Better Business Bureau of Greater Houston and South Texas<br />

“Being in the financial services industry, it is often difficult to provide a tangible gift that is<br />

perceived to have value as well as provide us with the marketing benefits we are looking for –<br />

the history books filled this void.”<br />

- Victoria National Bank<br />
