Supporting Children's Literacy in SC

Imagine the Possibilities

As many as one-third of South Carolina children enter kindergarten without the literacy skills they need to succeed.  By simply providing new age-appropriate books to children and encouraging families to read together daily, we are working to change that.

My First Books SC provides a new book each month to all South Carolina children under age five… at no cost to the child’s family.

More than 34,000 children are receiving books each month. However, that is only 12% of eligible children in the state.

Help us reach every child in the state.

  • $33 helps us reach one more child
  • $66 helps us reach one more family
  • $165 helps one child graduate
  • $660 helps us fund one more pre-school class
  • $1,650 helps us fund a new site
  • $6,600 helps us start a program in a new community
