Does your kidlet's teacher have Start-of-the-School-Year Money? Would they like to increase it by 50%? Or do you know a worthy organization that would like to multiply grant money for literacy? Here's a possible answer..
Educational Development Corporation has developed a program, Literacy for a Lifetime that aligns the company with corporate donors to provide quality products to educational institutions and charitable organizations.
Literacy for a Lifetime incorporates a 50% matching grant for corporate donations to an organization. For example, if a corporation or private foundation has a grant of $10,000 for a local school for supplemental curriculum and it is used to purchase products from Educational Development Corporation, EDC will match it with an additional grant of $5,000.
Another example: a teacher has $300 for materials for her classroom. Through Literacy for a Lifetime she can receive a total of $450 in books for the classroom.
It's that easy. Know an organization eligible for a grant for literacy? Contact the local EDC representative at the link below and see how you can multiply getting books into the hands of children.
