You Can Help Close the Bay Area Achievement Gap

2/3 of Oakland youth arrive to Kindergarten already behind. For every $1,000 we can empower 7 students through Community Reading Buddies. Your tax-deductible donation (EIN: 20-5274459) can help close that gap and/or support our other programming for underserved Bay Area youth.

How Your Donation Can Support Vulnerable Students

$50 purchases four brand new take-home books for a Community Reading Buddies student.

$100 provides two individualized tutoring sessions to a student on an academic scholarship.

$150 empowers a student to participate in Community Reading Buddies for eight weeks.

$475 provides tuition to one student for an entire SAT course, helping them get into the school of their dreams

$1200 fully funds a classroom of books and supplies for Community Reading Buddies.
