Turn the Page KC envisions a city where everyone has the literacy skills they need to succeed in life.
Help us make this happen.
Children are more likely to become engaged readers if they have access to books featuring characters who look like them.
For $50, you will provide 10 new, inclusive books to a child who has limited access to books in their home.
The books included in school libraries should reflect the population of students the school serves. Inclusive books help foster a welcoming school community, and create engaged readers.
For $500, you will provide 60 books to a school library and create countless opportunities for children to see themselves reflected in the books they read.
Turn the Page KC is a 501(c)(3) organization. Since Turn the Page KC was founded in 2011, the number of 3rd graders reading at grade-level and above has increased every year, enrollment in academic summer programs has quadrupled, and chronic student absenteeism has dropped 4%.
As a community, we have made progress, but there is still work to be done to ensure that every student can read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade and have a chance at a successful and productive future.
