Become a South Sound Reading Foundation Sponsor!

Sponsorships help us build partnerships in the community.

Your business can help children and get your name out to the community by sponsoring one of our events, programs, or book van.

Sponsor our... Programs

Our programs educate children and families about the importance of reading and strive to get books into the hands of every child so they have the tools they need to read and succeed.

Books for Babies Gives 1,300 new board books and literacy information to families leaving the hospital with newborns.
Born to Read Partners with medical professionals to give 1400 board books and information to low-income families at their baby’s 6-month checkup.
Books for the Break Partners with schools and food banks to deliver 7,500+ books to homeless and low-income children so they can read during breaks.
Literacy Bookshelves Stocks 13,700+ books on bookshelves at 40 agencies serving low-income clients so children can take a free book home to read.
Connect with Me Provides books and literacy materials to incarcerated parents to share with their children during family visits.
Read to Me Shares story time visits and free books with 180-210 children ages 3-5 at Head Start and other childcare facilities monthly.

What are the benefits of sponsoring an SSRF program? Besides getting books to the children of your community, SSRF sponsorship advertises your support by including your logo or name (depending on sponsorship level) on our website, e-Newsletters, and social media posts.
