Join us to end illiteracy and poverty.

Stakeholder financial support for operations allows us to dedicate 100% of public donations to literacy

We strive to raise dedicated funds for operations from private donors and magazine industry champions, so we can reach our objective to spend 100% of the consumer and local business funds we raise on direct literacy programs and services – getting new and recycled magazines into the hands, homes, and hearts of the children and families we serve.

Dedicating 100% of public donations directly to address our literacy programs is an audacious goal and bold statement.  It’s only possible with generous corporate, magazine industry, and stakeholder support.

The Magazine Publishers Family Literacy Project (MagazineLiteracy.org) is a 501(c)3 charity.  We rely on financial support from any and every magazine industry stakeholder throughout the supply chain – editors, publishers, circulation pros, printers, distributors, fulfillment shops, ad agencies, and other champions to pay our administrative and operational expenses.

We know that your financial support is precious and greatly appreciate every bit.  We strive to use those dollars in a responsible, effective, and efficient manner.  Every organization has administrative and operating costs to sustain their missions, and we are no different.  We have to “keep the lights on” to conceive, plan, execute, and manage our literacy projects and to grow to our full potential to meet our responsibility against enormous literacy challenges.

With private, corporate,  and magazine industry stakeholder donations covering our operating expenses, we can achieve our goal of dedicating 100% of public donations to direct literacy programs and services, inspiring even more giving by the consumers and local businesses who support our community programs.

To stretch those operating dollars far, we run our operations extremely lean and achieve a very high rate of return on the funds invested in our operations.  Here’s how:
