Honor/Memory Gifts

Donate in the name of — or in the memory of — loved ones, families, friends, and colleagues. These gifts are especially meaningful on special occasions, holidays, celebrations, and days of remembrance. Read to Grow will send cards to your honorees or to the people you designate to announce your gifts.

Matching Gifts

Maximize your donations through your employer’s matching gift program. Some employers match dollar for dollar, which doubles your gifts. Please contact your Human Resources office to find out the options. Forms that enable Read to Grow to receive these matches are mailed (or emailed) to us either by the employer or the employee.

Individuals, groups and companies can donate equipment, products and services to support Read to Grow. Examples include, but are not limited to: computers, children’s books, technology support, and printing services.
