The Stocker Foundation aims to lessen the achievement gap for under-resourced
prekindergarten through 3rd grade public school students by investing in programs that strengthen Reading Literacy. Successful Letters of Inquiry will document how a program ties-back to reading literacy, promoting academic gains for those students served.

Areas of Interest:
Supplemental Programs that move students toward grade-level reading mastery

Comprehensive Intervention Strategies/Whole School Improvement that increase overall literacy achievement by third grade

Book Distribution Programs that increase students access to print materials, encourage students reading outside of the classroom , and develops students life-long love of reading

Programs that support Emerging Literacy and Reading Skills among preschoolers
(children enter kindergarten ready to read)

Some limited funding is available for services that can help remove barriers toward reading success (Food Bank sponsored childrens hunger programs such as the BackPack Program)

Additional Info:
All organizations seeking funding must first submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI). LOIs for summer 2018 or school year 2018 - 2019 will be accepted through June 30, 2017.
