Literacy ends poverty. Reading is where it all begins. Join us.

MagazineLiteracy.org in a nutshell

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

Illiteracy is a root cause of poverty.

Freedom and prosperity depend on literacy.

Children unable to read cannot do well in any school subject. Adults unable to read were once children who didn’t learn how.

With titles for every reading level and interest, magazines and comics are especially powerful literacy resources.

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

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

100% of funds donated by Literacy Funders is used to delivery new and recycled magazines and comics 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.
