Give For Good
Give For Good Louisville is our community’s biggest day of local giving. Hosted by the Community Foundation of Louisville, the 24 hour fundraiser puts a spotlight on nonprofit organizations in Louisville. On September 17th 2020, I Would Rather Be Reading participated in our 3rd annual Give For Good Louisville. Our goal this year was to raise $7,000 to open a NTI Day Camp at Park Hill Community Center to provide students and families with academic and health support.
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, there will soon be a second IWRBR learning site at Park Hill Community Center. At Park Hill Community Center, children will have a safe space 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.
