Literacy for a Lifetime
Literacy for a Lifetime is a 50% grant matching program partnering with Usborne Books & More with schools, businesses, and foundations to support local educational institutions. The program matches any corporate or individual donation or grant that purchases books from Usborne Books & More with an additional 50% in free books.
The organization receiving the books has control over the selection of Usborne and Kane Miller books from our array of over 1800 titles.
The grant matching program can be used as often as donations/grants become available. There is no cap on the amount that can be donated or matched.
Reach for the Stars!!
Reach for the Stars!! (RFTS) is a pledge-based reading incentive program, designed to benefit schools, classrooms, clubs, preschools, church groups, home school groups, charities, businesses and public libraries.
The goal of RFTS is for participants to develop a daily reading habit during the 1-2 week period by reading or being read to for 150 minutes per week. This develops a reading routine while being rewarded with Usborne and Kane Miller books for bringing in pledges.
Returns a minimum of 100% back to the organization and students in a combination of Usborne & Kane Miller books. A cash fundraiser option is also available.
Educational experts recommend that children read 30 minutes per weekday. This program offers a fun and rewarding way to develop that habit.
