You’re reading this because you learned to read.

Chances are, you’ve read a lot in your life, perhaps even without thinking about it. You learned firsthand that reading is important for life—everything from your education to your health, your job, to the simple act of reading street signs—it all requires literacy.

Give a Tennessee child this same gift.

It’s more than books.
It’s the future of Tennessee.

Storyteller Society

Join Booker’s Book Club and give a Tennessee child the gift of reading.

Learning to read takes consistent effort. Support the ongoing efforts of young readers by giving monthly through Booker’s Book Club, starting at $20 a month.

Other Ways to Give

Start a Campaign

Use social media to help give Tennessee children the gift of reading. You can create your own fundraising campaign page on Facebook—in honor of your birthday, a milestone, holiday, or just because!

Planned Giving

Leave a legacy that will impact early literacy for the future generation by making a planned gift. A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of your overall financial or estate planning.

Employer Match

You may be able to double your impact on early literacy through a matching gift from your employer. Talk to your employer to see if they match charitable contributions to make your gift go farther!

Gifting Securities

Donating appreciated securities can be very tax-effective, while at the same time making a lasting difference in the lives of Tennessee children. Reach out to our staff to start this conversation!
