The Magazine Publishers Family Literacy Project – a 501(c)(3) charity – is the first and only global, magazine industry-wide literacy campaign for children and families.
We inspire consumers, businesses, and groups to support community literacy needs by donating new and recycled magazines, funds, and volunteer time to share the wonderful magazines we love with at-risk children and families.

“I am met with beaming smiles from the children and words of gratitude from the mothers on every delivery. A program director commented that ‘magazines are engaging, not intimidating, and the women love having the resource.’ The shelters have used the magazines to teach families about health and nutrition, finances, parenting, and positive images in the media.”
