Give the Gift of Giving

 The I Would Rather Be Reading network of supporters are the sole reason that 150+ children have received the services they needed during non-traditional instruction (NTI) , summer programs, and for that we are grateful. 


The pandemic presented us with new challenges in providing our families with resources while working from home and dealing with financial hardships caused by COVID-19. Thankfully, in 2021 children were able to return to school full time, but our families still need your support more than they ever have due to learning losses that occurred during this time. 

We are asking that you consider supporting our programs during the holiday season. The goal for our end of year campaign is to find 50 individuals willing to commit to a $25 recurring donation to immediately ensure that:

  • 50 youth benefit from after school programs

  • Mindfulness, Healthy Habits, and Physical Education enrichment opportunities are available at each of our four sites 

  • 50 youth receive small group or 1:1 reading support


Your gift makes a life-changing difference for so many IWRBR kids. Please read below to learn about four different ways you can help us meet our goal and provide essential services for families in need. Thank you for your continued support.
