Giving back. Paying it forward. Making a difference.
The Reading Connection's sponsors understand that giving back is an essential part of living in the world. They believe that paying it forward is a worthwhile choice. And they choose to make a difference through The Reading Connection, where 80 cents of every dollar goes to programs whose goal is to energize young readers and provide interesting, attractive books to kids who have none.
In 2005 and again in 2009, The Reading Connection was chosen as one of our featured charities after financial and program evaluation. It is truly "one of the best" smaller charities in the Washington area.
It is hard to find a more effective way to break the cycle of poverty than by educating at-risk children. Among organizations working in that field, you would be hard pressed to find a more noble, effective and uplifting organization than The Reading Connection.
We are both so happy we could help The Reading Connection as part of our wedding celebration. Picking out books for you all was the most fun purchase I've made it the past few months. I'm more into helping kids read than particular dresses or shoes!
As a businessman, I'm interested in results, and I support TRC because it's effective at achieving its mission. I've supported my share of groups, and none had a more professional, committed staff or a more invested army of volunteers than TRC's.

This wonderful organization introduces children to the joy of reading, a pleasure that can last a lifetime, and an escape to anywhere. New Horizons is delighted to be part of The Reading Connection’s community support.

The Reading Connection is a terrific organization that serves its community very well. The backpack drive demonstrates just one way in which TRC takes its partnerships to the next level. In whatever they do, though, it is always the kids that come first.

We are glad to provide matching funds to inspire TRC’s Volunteer Outreach Committee to reach its $10,000 goal. It is an example of TRC’s ingenuity in building volunteer capacity and donor support.
