Grants of up to $2,500 to California K-3 public school teachers in eligible areas for programs that promote reading at grade level. Funding may be used to purchase teacher resources, audio books, books, training programs, and other educational materials. Support is given to projects taking place in Long Beach.

The Rotary Charitable Foundation will provide funding to the Long Beach Education Foundation to support teacher-driven literacy projects. Long Beach Unified School District teachers (Pre-school through Third Grade, including Special Education) may apply for grants for innovative and creative reading and literacy programs in their classrooms (virtual or in-person). COVID-19 has called teachers to be resourceful and innovative in how they provide stimulating reading experiences to their young students, and the need for effective programs is greater than ever. 

Applications will be judged on effectiveness, creativity, uniqueness, and on their objective of helping children to be able to read at grade level by age 9.
