HELP US FIND GRANTS!

Jessica Brown-Clark with Target grant check

Did you know Reading to Kids receives about half of our funding from corporation and foundation grants? For example, over the last five years alone six of our volunteers helped us receive $140,000 in grants from their employers!

Please check to see if your employer offers grants that Reading to Kids can apply to, and let us know! You may help us buy thousands of books for kids!

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you at our 20th Anniversary Celebration on May 11th!
