Literacy for a Lifetime

This is a program set up by Usborne Books and More. It is a grant matching program where companies, corporations, foundations along with individuals can team up with Usborne to support local educational institutions such as schools, libraries, daycares and more. This helps to supply these institutions with quality books to aid in the education of children. How does it work?

Make a donation to an educational institution of $200.00 or more, which is then forwarded to Usborne.

Usborne will then match every $200.00 an up with a 50% grant.

The institute receiving the books is able to chose their books from over 1300 titles.

This program can be utilized as grant money becomes available as many times as an institute desires. There is no cap on the amount which is donated or can be matched.

Donations made to the grant program are tax deductible.
