Springboard for Children exists because every year 1 in 5 children leave primary school without reaching the expected levels of literacy. This means that approximately 1.62 million children in English schools can’t access the school curriculum because they aren’t reading well enough.
Research has shown that functional illiteracy can be a factor in social exclusion including anti-social behaviour, criminality and unemployment.1 As such, the efficacy and importance of intervention programmes such as ours is widely acknowledged.
Corporate fundraising can make a huge difference to the number of children we are able to reach and can be a wonderful way for companies to pull together for a common cause.
Have a glance at our case studies to see how corporations can make a big difference.
