Oakland Literacy Coalition - Oakland Reads
Grants ranging from $250 to $1,000 to Oakland, California schools, preschools, or nonprofit community organizations to promote literacy for children (ages 0 - 8). Funding is intended for events that involve children and their families, feature a read-aloud or parent workshop, connect families with resources to encourage reading at home, and give at least one book to every child in attendance to add to their home collection. Funds may be used to cover Family Reading Celebration expenses including books, food, professional workshop presenter fees, and raffle prizes.
Grants may be used for a one-time event or a series of recurring family literacy activities. Applicants are encouraged to budget for new, high-interest, culturally and linguistically responsive books and professional resources to lead parent workshops or model reading strategies. Grant amounts will be determined based on the size of the event and how funds will be used to connect families with resources to support reading.
