The Book Industry Charitable Foundation released results from a survey it conducted on how familiar book industry employees are with the organization. While Binc reported that respondents "overwhelmingly" said that there is a "definite need" for the type of services and grants it offers, only 17% of those polled were extremely or very familiar with the organization.

In the statement that accompanied the results, Binc said that "raising awareness of the Foundation will continue to be a major focus." Pam French, executive director of Binc, noted that, “the feedback was valuable in many ways, particularly in reinforcing the need for continued and expanded efforts to raise awareness of Binc, and that those in the industry are very willing to support the Foundation through volunteering their time and making donations.”
