If a student is not reading proficiently by fourth grade, that student will have a 78% chance of never catching up.

A full 14% of adults in the United States, approximately 32,000,000 Americans, cannot read.

Because Literacy Matters in the Lives of Children

Literacy Matters is more than just a name. It is a deeply held belief that literacy does, in fact, matter in the lives of children. If we believe as a nation that every child must know how to read, then we have an obligation to ensure that those same children have the tools they need to become strong, lifelong readers. Literacy Matters Foundation will strive to provide early readers in need (PreK-3rd grade) with a copy of their own book and to provide the adults who impact the lives of those children with the resources to develop future readers.
