Each dollar you give helps YCLF grow libraries.
For our GivingTuesday campaign, we are raising funds to purchase and distribute books to children throughout Yolo County.
Studies show that children who enter Kindergarten with early literacy skills are more likely to read at grade level by 3rd grade and graduate from high school. In Yolo County, only 42% of children read at grade level by 3rd grade.
Therefore, we believe it is essential to help families create literacy rich learning environments at home that offer easily accessible, inclusive, and age-appropriate books.
Your $50 donation will fund ten books for a local family to help them build their home library.
Your $250 donation will fund starter home libraries for five families.
A $500 donation will create literacy rich environments in the homes of ten families.
