OUR MISSION: MAKING SURE KIDS CAN READ
Nearly 2/3 of American 4th graders are reading below grade level. Our mission is to leverage the power and influence of athletics to develop successful readers – supporting programs that teach kids the fundamentals directly linked to success later in life. Here's how:
FIGHT FOR LITERACY GAMES
Coaches, teams and fans come together –participating in awareness efforts, volunteer opportunities and fundraising activities.
FUNDING FOR LITERACY PARTNERS
Funds raised by Fight For Literacy Games is provided to organizations with proven success helping students read at or above grade level.
A FIGHT WORTH FIGHTING
The inability to read proficiently puts today's young people at greater risk of unemployment, poverty, and poor health later in life – greatly impacting our communities and our nation.
That's why we are committed to this fight. So far, we've conducted 100+ Fight for Literacy Games with 50+ NCAA partners, helped by 25+ local organizations in 20+ communities across 16 states, funding 75+ literacy projects on behalf of 10,000 children. Join us.
REAL COACHES, REAL RESULTS
Find a great coach and you will find a human being who – beyond the X's and O's – understands that winning means being part of something bigger than oneself. There is nothing bigger than helping ensure a child has a shot at a successful future. This video tells the story.
