About

Love to raise funds for great causes? We could use your help!

Reach Out and Read Connecticut is looking for volunteers to help us raise funds so we can continue to prepare disadvantaged children for academic success. At Reach Out and Read we give brand new books to children 5 years old and younger at their pediatric well-child visits. Additionally, our doctors educate parents on the importance of reading aloud daily with their children. Low-income children are at the highest risk for reading and school failure. By working through the existing healthcare system, we are able to reach these high-risk children and families and help to develop the critical skills they need in order to read successfully and succeed in school and in life.

Much of our funding comes from generous foundation support. Given that, we need talented and experienced grant writers to help us identify foundations whose giving priorities align with our mission and write compelling grants. If this is a good match for you, we would love to have you join our team to help prepare all of our Connecticut children for success!
