Update from Raising A Reader

We are delighted to share with our GlobalGiving supporters that Raising A Reader has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as an evidence-based, innovative approach to literacy in the form or our first federal grant! Funded under the Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) Program, Raising A Reader was awarded $4 million over a two-year period to serve 20,000 children and their families in Baltimore, Boston and Phoenix.

That does not mean we are done! We have children to serve in many other cities across the United States and we need your help. A donation of just $35 will ensure a child’s continued participation with RAR for a full year. A gift of $100 will allow a new child and his/her family to take advantage of Raising A Reader’s book bag rotation and family engagement program.

So far this year we’ve raised $2,885 towards our goal of $36,000. And now, through the end of the year, all donations will be matched by a generous donor at 100%. Just think - your $35 donation would turn into $70, funding two children for an entire year and launching them on a positive trajectory toward academic success.

Please consider a contribution toward our children’s future by supporting Raising A Reader.
