Help reverse the literacy crisis in the US!

Donate to Read to a Child during March (National Reading Month)

Paul's Page to Help Kids in Need Love to Read! A Project of Read to a Child

Imagine where you would be if you were not able to read well!

For me, reading proficiently has been critical to my success. And for that, I thank my parents! I remember my parents reading aloud to us from when I was very young. This helped spark my imagination, helped me learn to read from a very young age, and ultimately led to my love of reading.

Unfortunately, millions of under-served children across the country don't receive this gift at home and are significantly behind more affluent peers when they reach elementary school. 80% of low-income students in the U.S. are not proficient readers by 4th grade and more than 25% of these struggling readers won't graduate from high school. This is a huge crisis in our country and you can help.

By donating any amount, you can help Read to a Child in its mission to enable more children to develop a love of reading and help reverse the alarming cycles of illiteracy, incarceration and poverty in the US!

A donation today can help in the following ways

  • $25 can get a series of chapter books into a child's hands
  • $50 can provide screening and training of a volunteer
  • $100 can sponsor a year-end celebration and certificates for the children in the program
  • $250 can provide new books customized to children's interests and teacher requests
  • $500 can sponsor a child in Read to a Child's Lunchtime Reading Program for a year!
  • $1,000 or above will automatically add you to the "Seuss Circle" Leadership Giving Level
  • $2,000 can sponsor a child for all four years of the program (from 1st to 4th grade)!
Thank you for your support!
