Thank you to our many donors in 2012! With your generous contributions, we have raised over $15,000 to be granted to deserving children in Bucks, Montgomery, and Delaware Counties.

Book Grant Recipients
A typical book grant lasts for a one-year period and offers each child in the program a steady diet of books (usually one book per month), all at no cost to the program. Because program administrators select the titles through First Book catalogs, our book grants enable programs — often for the first time — to select books to integrate into curriculum.
