Northwest Literacy Foundation

The mission of Northwest Literacy Foundation is to enhance youth literacy in the Pacific Northwest by providing literature and resources to underserved communities. In short, we put great books in the hands of school-age children.

To do our work, we collaborate with schools and organizations throughout the area, serving students with high needs and who often lack a depth of resources. Through grants of books, we work to fill the shelves of local school libraries, provide additional classroom resources, host author visits and purchase books for community organizations engaged in educational programs. With a rich history of focusing on young readers, collaborating with schools and building effective community partnerships, Northwest Literacy Foundation has provided over 180,000 new books to children, schools and community groups.
Since our 25th Anniversary, we have been supported with donations by our region's top companies including Amazon, Boeing, Chase Bank, Nucor Steel and Alaska Airlines.

Other local businesses, including Georgetown Brewing and media partners such as KZOK radio, help us promote our work through in-kind donations. At annual donor events, we bring people together and hear directly from librarians what impact their dollars are having with the students we serve.
