Every young Canadian should have access to good Canadian books. Help make this a priority.
The I Read Canadian Fund supports getting Canadian Books into the hands of young people across the country. Additionally this fund supports and the expansion of the Forest of Reading program into Indigenous, rural and priority communities, plus the delivery of books. Let’s get kids excited about reading for fun!
The I Read Canadian Fund promotes engagement in reading through:
- The journey of books: transportation and logistical costs associated with getting new and current books by Canadian authors into the hands of young readers across Canada.
- A rock concert of reading: allowing children to experience a local Forest of Reading event, where they can meet and participate in workshops with their favourite Canadian authors.
- Cultivating a love of reading: Cover the cost of Forest of Reading program registration.
Donors receive recognition of donations on our website, volunteer opportunities for your employees, and tax receipts (for donations over $20.00).
