Our Governor’s Circle partners help us build lifelong learners statewide.

Without the strategic support and generosity of our statewide partners, our efforts to strengthen early literacy in Tennessee would not be possible. Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation (GELF) is honored to have such passionate partners – some of Tennessee’s (and the world’s) best known brands – as we work together to amplify early literacy programs to build lifelong learners in Tennessee. The Governor’s Circle is comprised of corporate partners that support GELF at the statewide level.
