Donate to the Foundation for Struggling Readers
Supporting transformative research, financial awards, and initiatives to ensure the early literacy and Reading Recovery profession continues forward in excellence.
The Foundation for Struggling Readers supports the development of early literacy scholars and practitioners who guide struggling readers to unlock the student’s skills through the evidenced-based strategies of Reading Recovery. Our primary goal is to be good stewards of financial resources to support the early literacy field and its future, provide opportunities and access to professional development resources, and encourage research to improve our practice.
The Foundation receives donations from individuals and corporate partners to help advance our mission, empower those working in early literacy, and engage the broader literacy and K-8 community. Because the Foundation is part of RRCNA, donations are tax deductible as a 501c3 organization.
The Foundation supports:
- Professional development financial awards.
- Literacy resources development.
- Partnership initiatives.
- Improvement science & research initiatives.
- Leadership development for our community.
- Enhancing our engagement in national conversations.
Hundreds of professionals and organizations have chosen to invest their time and their funds into the Foundation, and, in turn, invest in the future of early literacy and Reading Recovery. With your help, the Foundation may underwrite transformative research, funding awards, and other initiatives to ensure our profession can continue forward in excellence.
You can help the Foundation invest in our future by:
- Engaging in one of our fundraising activities.
- Contributing in honor or memory of a colleague.
- Making a 1-time donation or recurring pledge.
- Directing a required retirement withdrawal to the Foundation.
- Volunteering your time and energy as a Foundation leader.
Donors honor family and friends Remember a friend’s birthday, honor a retirement, celebrate the birth of a grandchild, or just make someone’s day, and consider a donation to the Reading Recovery Fund in their name.
A quick way to send a personal message
Teacher leader Jeanne Lemire finds it especially convenient to use the “Make a Gift” button to make contributions. Being in Germany with the DoDDS school system, she found that packages and letters can take a while to reach their destinations in the United States. Several times in the past when she learned that a friend had lost a loved one, Jeanne expressed her sympathy by making an online gift to the Reading Recovery Fund in memory of the person who died. Thanks to this option she was able to quickly send a personal message to her friends to assure the family that their loved one was remembered.
