If our bank provides money to have a book vending machine put into a school (with our logo on it), could this qualify for CRA donation credit?
The school has received a grant to purchase the books but are just lacking the machine.

In short, the students receive a special token to use in the machine to get a free book.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

That might be tough to count. Does the school have a majority of students eligible for free/reduced lunch?

Personally I'd do the donation and write it up as a donation to benefit overall education at a LMI school and hope for the best. I don't recall a time our exam team has dis-allowed a CRA donation to a LMI school other than athletic funds.
