Third grade is the last year students are taught how to read; afterward, students are required to read in order to learn. Without basic reading comprehension skills by the third grade, students fall behind not only in literacy, but in all subjects—students who do not read proficiently by the end of third-grade are 4X less likely to graduate from high school.
By donating to Read Better Be Better, you help third-grade students gain the literacy and learning skills needed for academic success. In addition, your gift builds middle school youth leaders into community leaders. Our investment campaigns are created with various funding levels and programmatic outcomes in mind. Plus, your generosity is eligible for the AZ Tax Credit up to $400 (individuals) and $800 (joint).
Thank you for your support and investment in our students and communities.
