All Ages Read Together

Goal: $10,000.00

Specific Need

------

Update 11:15 am, May 5th:

Thank you, everyone, for your generosity! We have met our match and are still accepting donations. We are anticipating a great need in the coming months as unemployment claims hit a record high. The children will need us and we need you! Thank you for your support.

 

------

COVID-19 Update: There is so much that is out of our control right now and our local communities are hurting in ways that no one could have predicted. Organizations are having to pivot their strategies to support their constituents while dealing with many funders shifting their priorities to fund emergency services so people can get the resources they need right now. We need the help of the community to continue providing support to families in need.

 

We anticipate an upsurge in need based on recent layoffs and furloughs. In our service area alone, there are upwards of 20,000 people who have filed unemployment claims.

AART is a vital resource that provides lower-income families in our region the needed support to ensure their children are prepared for success in kindergarten and beyond. Summer is critical for our students as it is truly the last chance for them to gain the necessary skills before entering the public school system. 

 

We are asking the community to help us fully fund two new summer classes to meet the anticipated demand based on recent layoffs and furloughs in our area.

 

How will we use your donation?

Each summer class costs around $5,000.00 which covers 5-weeks of instruction (3-times a week, 2-hour duration) and the expenses to run the program: lead teacher's salary, assistant teacher's salary, books, supplies, and administrative costs.

 

What does it mean that you have a matching donor? 

That means you can double your impact dollar for dollar up to $5,000. Our match sponsor is REI Systems (http://www.reisystems.com) and we cannot thank them enough for investing in our program and students.

 

AART can BE that quantifiable change in a child’s life; a change that is a predictor of a child’s future academic career and success in the workforce. 

 

Mission

All Ages Read Together (AART) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) dedicated to educating children in need with free preschool programs in their communities.

 

We envision a future where all children, especially our most vulnerable, enter school prepared to learn and succeed. We strive for a future in which public education includes universal access to preschool, making the need for AART obsolete.

 

We are truly the last resort for the families we serve.
