Give For Good Louisville is our community’s biggest day of local giving. On September 17th 2021, I Would Rather Be Reading is participating in our 4th annual Give For Good Louisville fundraiser. Our goal this year is to raise $25,000 to provide literacy intervention, enrichment, and supplies to students attending after school programming.
In 24 hours our Give For Good Louisville campaign raised $12,870, surpassing our $7,000 goal by nearly $6,000. The generosity of everyone who contributed to I Would Rather Be Reading was overwhelming! Because of each and every one of the 295 donors who participated, we were able to open a second IWRBR learning site in the Park Hill neighborhood. This site provided a safe space for students to complete their NTI virtual work, engage in daily reading and math enrichment lessons, participate in social-emotional wellness activities, and receive physical health checkups.
