Bright Futures Annual Campaign
Help support students and programs by donating to our annual Bright Futures campaign. This is our largest campaign of the year and it helps to fund all Reading Center programs and scholarships. Our goal is to raise $75,000 by May 2019!! In 2018, more than $53,000 in scholarships were awarded to students and trainees.
Due to the generosity of the Rochester Scottish Rite Children’s Foundation, $10,000 in matching funds are available - first come, first served!
Donations are accepted by mail (847 5th Street NW, Rochester, MN 55901), over the phone (507-288-5271) or online via the link below.
Your donation to The Reading Center does so much good! Almost half of the money we raise goes to fund scholarships for tutoring, testing, and training. Your donation underwrites the life-changing programs like our Best of Basics Summer Program, our Orton-Gillingham Training Institute, FREE screenings for 4-6 year olds, and FREE educational outreach programs in our community.
$250 could help a family have their child tested at The Reading Center in order to put the child on a path to success.
$500 could support a 50% scholarship to help an adult attend our Orton-Gillingham Training Institute to learn methods that help dyslexic kids learn how to read.
$1,000 could pay for a child in need to receive three months of 1:1 Orton-Gillingham tutoring from a highly trained Reading Center tutor, helping her experience success at school.
