To give children access to books, we're partnering with City Year, Scholastic and other local groups to bring beautiful, colorful, and expansive book fairs to low-income schools at no cost to the students. Through your donations, every student at the school chooses three new books to take home.  Book ownership is key to student success, because…


As a sponsor of one student, a number of students, or an entire school, we at READ USA are grateful for you for your important role in providing brand new book choice, book ownership and for turning the page on poverty through supporting a culture of literacy for lifelong learning. All levels receive contribution acknowledgment (for tax purposes), THANK YOU notes by mail, and listing on website and/or other print/media, as applicable.

Your gift means so much to a child’s future.

Every penny counts towards a child’s education.

Fund a school, receive additonal benefits.


Consider Volunteering

It could change your life, It WILL change theirs.
