Reading to Kids Annual Fund Drive

It's the final 11 days of our 2017 Annual Fund Drive, and we need your help to find 102 more donors to reach our goals before the end of the year!

Here's how you can help before our fund drive ends on the 31st:

1) Donate by check or online today. Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated!

2) Ask friends and family to contribute! We've made it super simple - just print out our donor sheet and start asking, or spend a few minutes personalizing and sending our sample email.  Reach out to your social media contacts, too!

3) Double your donation! Ask your employer to match your donation to Reading to Kids and double your impact.

Once they know about Reading to Kids, many will want to donate - we just need you to ask!

Note: If donating by check, please make sure the check is dated on or before December 31, 2017. If donating by credit card, the donation must be made on or before December 31, 2017.

Reading to Kids Annual Fund Drive


At the January 13th reading clubs we are eager to give away a computer or iPad to one lucky kid at each school.

If you or your employer have any working computers that are less than 6 years old running Windows 7 or later, or any Macintosh computers less than 7 years old, or any iPads or similar tablets, we can give them to deserving kids!

We especially need working computers (CPUs), whether or not they come with monitors, keyboards, etc. Please email us at info@readingtokids.org for details.



Do you know any runners? Are you a runner? Please forward this email to them and ask them to join Team Reading to Kids in next year's 2018 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 18th!

If you or a runner you know is interested in becoming one of our fundraising runners or creating a fundraising team, please email Chris Martin at marathon@readingtokids.org!
