Early literacy is vital to every child's success.

The Reason Why

The challenge

Students who can read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade are nearly four times more likely to graduate from high school. But barely more than half of 4th graders in the Bay can read at grade-level proficiency or above.

Our Approach

The solution

This fund focuses on removing the obstacles that prevent children from learning to read early. These nonprofits make sure all children have access to books at home, and build healthy reading habits from a young age.
