The organizations that we choose to partner with have a proven track record of helping their students become more literate.
They are some of the best literacy programs in the country and we are honored to partner with them in the Fight for Literacy.
HOW WE SELECT OUR PARTNERS
Coaching for Literacy ensures that all funding given to literacy programs helps to create brighter futures for students in America. Learn more about how we select our partners:
Serve children at or below the 3rd grade-level.
At least 80% of the students benefitting from funds must live at or below the poverty line (assessed by student population receiving federally assisted lunch through the National School Lunch Program).
Literacy partners must share the following documentation with Coaching for Literacy: IRS 501 (c)(3) Determination Letter (when applicable), 990 Form and high-level ratings from charity evaluators GuideStar and Charity Navigator.
APPLICATION AND REPORTING
Literacy partners must complete: Application, Grant Receipt Report and Impact Story.
Creating a brighter future for kids across America looks different in every community. Partner literacy programs, community needs, and population all play a part in determining what solution is required to serve kids well, but there is always a good solution for each and every community.
Reading over the summer is crucial to literacy growth. Summer intervention programs ensure that children who need to continue reading during the summer are doing exactly that.
Embedded programs exist within many schools, libraries, and other institutions. These programs provide children with the extra attention they require to become better readers.
Books and digital readers are key to teaching literacy. Unfortunately, materials in areas that struggle with literacy are scarce. We help provide the materials so kids can learn.
