How You Can Help
There are many ways you can help Lead to Read KC students build a brighter future:
- Donate ― A $250 donation sponsors a student for a year of one-to-one reading and mentoring support. Become a sustaining donor with a $20/month commitment. Lead to Read KC also uses cash donations to purchase books that match our students’ reading levels at a very low cost. Any amount is welcomed and appreciated! You can donate online via the link below, or mail a check to Lead to Read KC, 6022 N. Strathbury Ave., Kansas City, MO 64151. Did you know that for most single-filers, up to $300 in cash contributions to most charitable organizations in 2021 are tax-deductible, even if you don’t itemize? Learn more here, or consult your tax advisor.
- Give Books ― Donate new or like-new books for special gifts to our students, to expand classroom libraries and to distribute to children in the community via our Reading Is EverywhereSM initiative. See our book donation guidelines for details.
- Shop ― If you shop on Amazon, use our Amazon Smile charity link.
Many thanks to all our generous donors and community partners for your support! We look forward to your continued partnership.
