All children are hard-wired to be problem solvers. They long to understand, are often troubled by issues in their communities, and are driven to be a part of the solution.

Support literacy for today and tomorrow 

Interested in supporting the efforts of the JCCL? Your donation can:

  • support a teacher to attend one of our professional learning experiences
  • provide a book for a teacher or student
  • help one more teacher to be able to attend the annual Iowa Reading Conference for two days of enriching professional learning.
  • Benefit the Young Readers and Writers Project, providing supplies, books, and support to bring a children’s book author to talk with the children. 

No gift is too small and will support our ongoing mission to transform literacy and help every teacher and child on their literacy journeys.
