Join us to end illiteracy and poverty.

MagazineLiteracy.org in a nutshell

MagazineLiteracy.org is the first and only global, magazine industry-wide literacy campaign for at-risk readers.

Freedom and prosperity depend on literacy.

Magazines are especially powerful literacy resources.

MagazineLiteracy.org gets new and recycled magazines to literacy programs for at-risk children, teens, and adults via the Magazine Literacy Marketplace, where:

  1. Literacy Programs register and define their literacy goals and magazine needs by reader, topic or title, quantity and frequency – then create literacy wish lists, and order new and recycled magazines for their readers.
  2. Magazine SuppliersVolunteers, consumers, and publishers supply recycled and new magazines to match Literacy Program needs, wish lists, and orders.
  3. Literacy Funders – individuals, groups, and businesses donate funds to get new and recycled magazines from Magazine Suppliers to Literacy Programs for at risk-readers.

100% of funds donated by Literacy Funders is used to delivery new and recycled magazines to Literacy Programs for at-risk readers.

Highly leveraged, lean operations are funded by industry angels and private donors.

MagazineLiteracy.org is a 501(c)(3) charity.
