Now more than ever, students need support from ALL sectors to ensure access to essential literacy support. To catalyze broader investment in literacy, our foundation is taking the first step and setting an ambitious goal to raise $25M for kids in high-needs communities.

Books Have Power
A book can change a child’s life – it can lead to a lifelong love of reading and educational success.
Many elementary schools in economically disadvantaged communities in Canada have limited library budgets. This leaves vulnerable students with inadequate school libraries filled with outdated, tattered and unappealing books.
The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation gives Canadian high-needs elementary schools funds to purchase the books and educational resources they need.
We are investing in a Canada where every child has access to books. And we need your help.
