Donations from generous individuals, families, foundations, and corporations provide financial assistance to strengthen Reading Recovery in the U.S. and Canada
What is the impact of this generosity?
Hundreds of thousands of struggling first graders have become independent readers and writers who are able to benefit from good classroom teaching and can therefore learn to be successful in school and life.
Since 2000, more than $3 million has been contributed to RRCNA by individuals, corporations and foundations.
These gifts have funded 393 grants and scholarships that helped to
- Train 116 Reading Recovery teacher leaders in 33 states and 2 provinces in Canada
- Provide professional development for 262 Reading Recovery professionals who then shared the literacy “best practices” that they learned with their colleagues
- Support the training of 15 university trainers.
Your gifts also help fund
- Advocacy initiatives at the federal level to influence education policy and sustain funding for Reading Recovery
- Professional development materials, books and learning tools to use with students
- Electronic and print resources to enhance teaching skills and knowledge
Standards for Excellence
The Council is accredited under the national Standards for Excellence: An Ethics and Accountability Code for the Nonprofit Sector. Accreditation certifies that an organization’s governance and management policies, practices, and procedures meet the highest ethics and quality standards.
The Standards program originated with Maryland Nonprofits. In Ohio, where RRCNA headquarters is located, the program is administered by the Ohio Association of Nonprofit Organizations. Of the tens of thousands of nonprofit organizations in the U.S., fewer than 200 have achieved this certification.
