Lmao. Why isn't even store doing this?
I work for charities, prople don't donate shit, Expect to make very little money if nay at all. Book stores are hard to run and have mostly the same consumers, and they are smarter than average, they would pick up on the scam very quickly.
The charity itself may be tax exempt, although you'd be pushing it since the 'charity' clearly exists to make money for the book shop, which is not a charitable purpose. It's really marketing, rather than charity.
But the book shop would still be paying tax on all its sales income, including from the schools that receive money from the charity. So you're paying (at least) the same amount of tax as you would if the money donated was just used on purchases instead. The advantage is getting more revenue (since schools are buying books from you when they otherwise wouldn't) rather than paying less tax.
Incidentally, it would be logistically far simpler if the charity purchased books from the book shop and donated them to schools, rather than giving money to schools and then trying to ensure that they spend it in accordance with your rules.
