We support you so you can focus on teaching children to read.
We use the power of sports to raise awareness and financial support for your work. Thanks to the support of over 50 partner NCAA teams and NBA players we have funded 86 literacy projects nationwide and directly supported more than 15,000 kids.

LITERACY PARTNER SELECTION METHODOLOGY
For information on how we select our partners please refer to our Literacy Partners page.
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.
100% of the funds your fans raise will stay in your community. Learn more about how we raise funds for literacy work in your community: Fundraising FAQ.
We want donors to know how they are creating a brighter future. If your organization receives a grant in excess of $1,000 your Impact Story is due by September 30th.
We will seek to deploy the grant by March 30th. For any questions about the grant please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
