Nearly 2 out of 3 children in low-income communities don’t have a single children’s book to call their own.
When you purchase books for donation from our online shopping cart, you’re planting the seed to help a child develop a lifelong love for reading. You are more than an early literacy advocate, you are a life changer.
Thanks to Steve Nash and the Steve Nash Foundation, your donation will be matched up to $5,000!
Our friends at Comerica are matching your donations up to $2,500, too!

Books purchased through the Grow A Reader campaign are not delivered to the purchaser. Funds donated through the online shopping cart are pooled to purchase books at discounted rates and are distributed to families in need who participate in Southwest Human Development’s early literacy programs like Raising A Reader and Reach Out and Read.
