Our world has changed, and so has the education landscape.

COVID-19 forced teachers and students from traditional school settings to learning virtually from home. Children’s Literacy Initiative continues to help children become powerful readers, writers and thinkers by supporting distance learning.


#GivingTuesdayNow is an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. By taking part in this global philanthropic initiative, you can help CLI continue to provide teachers and families with the educational resources and support they need to help students learn from home.

As CLI helps teachers and districts adapt to the changing education landscape, your gift will be put to immediate use to support teachers in understanding what it takes to deliver effective online instruction. You will also provide much-needed support as we increase resources available to teachers and families through our web-based learning platform, We are in this together. Thank you for your support!
