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.
1 in 5 children do not achieve the expected levels of literacy by the age of 11. In disadvantaged city areas this figure rises to 1 in 3. 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.
We rely on the generous donations of time and fundraising from corporate sponsors. Together we can work to stem literacy failure and the poorer life chances that can follow.
Have a glance at our case studies to see how corporations can make a big difference.
