The Community Foundation Sonoma County’s iREAD grants program will be accepting applications until September 30, 2016.  

The Grant Program

Community Foundation Sonoma County’s iREAD grants program enables community organizations who have trusted relationships with families of young children to explore innovative ways of promoting family literacy. Particular emphasis goes to projects that engage under-served families in the areas prioritized in the Portrait of Sonoma County. Funding may be used for new projects or existing programs; if the program is existing, applicants must clearly demonstrate how this grant will enhance their work to promote literacy.

Examples of projects could include:

  • Events that promote family literacy
  • Increasing access to books through book bags or little libraries
  • Workshops for families on how to read to children
  • Creating videos or other media tools to engage families in reading

Funding requests can range from $5,000-$10,000.
