More Info


Reading Pals intertwines literary comprehension with community compassion by pairing volunteers with struggling readers. The premise is simple: one student, one volunteer, one hour a week. Since its inception, 1,300 Reading Pals volunteers have positively impacted 3,000 students. This community-driven program has provided over 67,000 hours of individualized reading attention, bolstering confidence and life-long learning skills. While literacy gains demonstrate the program’s success, the real magic lies in the confidence and connections made that continue far beyond classroom doors.

Note to Donors: North Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) provides this page for the convenience of the charitable organization noted above. Donors are provided an electronic tax receipt by NVCF shortly after the donation is made. An administrative fee of 5% is deducted from the donation as well as the fee charged by the card processing company, and the net amount is sent to the charitable organization not later than 30 days after the end of the month in which the donation is made. All amounts sent to the charitable organization are for its discretionary use.
