2024 Literacy Fund Grant Applications are now open!

Since 2004, this grant has given over 300 schools the opportunity to revitalize their library and has sparked a love of reading for thousands of kids across Canada!

Apply by January 14, 2024 and your publicly funded elementary school or educational organization could share in over $1 million for new books! ​

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 This leaves vulnerable students with inadequate school libraries filled with outdated, tattered and unappealing books.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.
