Donate to Our Mission

Your donation will have a direct impact in helping The Reading League to impart knowledge of effective reading instruction to thousands of educators.



The purpose of The Reading League is to increase knowledge of science-based approaches to teach reading as well as research that demystifies how people learn to benefit the lives of millions of students. We train and support educators and school leaders. By extension, we also serve parents, specialists, and researchers. We believe all children deserve to learn to read and all teachers can teach them.
