Why we need your help

For a person who cannot read, the likelihood of poor life outcomes such as unemployment, homelessness and mental health issues are a reality.

Sadly, many parents facing these socio-economic challenges are not in a position to buy books for their children and unable to provide the necessary educational support their children need in the first five years.

"International research reinforces the crucial importance of having a wide selection of books in the home to support children's ability to learn and succeed. Children with home libraries are propelled three years further in their education than children from bookless homes". - Evans, M.D.R., et al 2010

However, you can help to break the cycle of illiteracy and support the next generation of readers by making a donation to the Raising Literacy Australia Public Fund to help establish picture book libraries in communities experiencing social disadvantage.  You can read more about our impact here.

Early intervention is the most cost effective way to address social disadvantage.  By providing access to quality books and resources from as early as possible, you will help to unlock a child’s learning potential and improve their overall life chances.  

Thank you for supporting our vision to enrich Australian lives and communities through literacy.

Raising Literacy Australia is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.  All gifts over $2.00 are tax deductible.
