Program 1

America Reads

RSVP's America Reads Program established in 1996, trains volunteers as one-on-one reading tutors for young elementary school students having difficulty learning to read. These are the students whose reading difficulty is not severe enough for professional intervention, but who experience lower self-esteem than their more proficient classmates, which further impeded their learning.

Funding Needs

In addition to funding required to support our existing programs: We are currently seeking funding to purchase 4,200 books each year to be provided to low income pre-school children served through the RSVP Family Literacy Program.  We have had great success with the program and our outcomes are very positive.  We could triple the number of students served with the expansion and help disadvantaged preschool children and their parents develop a love of reading improving Kindergarten readiness.

"RSVP is a multiservice nonprofit organization that utilizes volunteers to help meet critical human needs in the community.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
