Millions of people from every corner of the world are denied access to literacy education every day. We believe that literacy is a fundamental, inalienable, human right. Your generous donation can help us achieve our mission of literacy for all.


Donate in memory of William H. Teale

The William Teale Memorial Fund

Recently the literacy field lost an influential educator and dear friend, Dr. William H. "Bill" Teale. A gift in Bill's memory serves as a tribute to his legacy of tireless pursuit to bring reading, books and literacy to every child in every home around the world, and this funding will help that work to continue.

Whether helping children to be surrounded by books or bringing knowledge and tools to teachers to strengthen and improve instruction of early childhood literacy, ILA will continue this important work thanks to your decision to honor Bill's lifetime dedication to children's literature and literacy.

Reading Programs

ILA and the National Association of Title I Directors (NASTID) have teamed up for a community-based program called Read, Eat, and Discover (READ). This program combines volunteer-led reading and/or instructional programs with existing Title I School vacation-based food programs to improve student reading and literacy skills and foster parental engagement. Your donation purchases much-needed books and other materials and enables us to expand this program throughout the United States.
