At GreaterGood, we do our best to raise awareness of good causes and to connect people every day with simple ways to make the world a better place. It is our charitable partners who do the heavy lifting — the ones who use the funds that your daily clicks and your shopping raise to accomplish the mission.
Funding for all chartable projects and partners is distributed by GreaterGood.org. Since GreaterGood began in 1999, we have given nearly $30 million to charities operating here and around the world.
Grants funded by The Literacy Site are paid by GreaterGood.org to charities and non-profit organizations implementing programs to provide books to schools, libraries, and children. Clicking and shopping on The Literacy Site helps fund grants for the following charitable partners, among others:
First Book provides new books to children in need, addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy — access to books. To date, First Book has distributed more than 90 million books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children from low-income families throughout the United States and Canada. First Book is transforming the lives of children in need and elevating the quality of education by making new, high-quality books available on an ongoing basis
Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children worldwide by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations and governments, Room to Read develops literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and helps girls to complete secondary school with the relevant life skills to succeed in school and beyond. The organization envisions a world in which all children can pursue a quality education that enables them to reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world.
