Support Us

A childhood without reading is the reality for too many children in the USA.

Babies, toddlers, children and young adults are losing out on their most important education years because they do not have proper access to books and education materials. USA Reads is committed to providing those materials so children can feel excited about their reading and feel confident in their education.

Will you join us and help transform the lives of children and young people struggling to read and write?

Impact USA Reads

In 2019 and 2020, we provided books and support to Michigan, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Tennessee and South Carolina. The disruption in education, due to Covid-19, is having a massive impact in the early childhood development of literacy skills. Millions of U.S. households do not have consistent access to computers or the internet, and because of this many school-aged children in the United States were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and school closures. Covid-19 has created a bigger divide in the reading gap, and this gap impacts people of color, low-income zip codes and low-income families at a higher rate.

By December 2022, we will establish and run 15 USA Reads chapters, in partnership with local community organizations and school districts. This will allow us to reach 500,000 children.

With the support of our Ambassadors, we reached 12 States through our vast network of local champions and community partners. Join with us with the expansion of our local chapters, as we impact thousands of children each year!
