Our annual Raise-a-Reader Fundraiser Campaign takes place from early August to the end of September. Funds raised during this time are ‘topped up’ by the Provincial Government. This makes Raise-a-Reader the best time to donate to Project Literacy, as your donation is almost doubled!
Raise a Reader funds are used to support our children, family, and adult literacy programs.
History of Raise-a-Reader:
The Raise-a-Reader fundraising and awareness campaign was created by Post Media in 1997 to support family literacy programs in BC. It helps to fund programs which improve literacy skills. These skills are the foundation for lifelong learning that affects the quality of life and the health and social economic well-being of individuals, families and communities.
In conjunction with the Raise-a-Reader Campaign, we hosted a Fundraiser BBQ at the Landmark District Courtyard (on Dickson Ave) on September 19th from 11:30am -1:30pm. We were so pleased with the turn out of our community who came to enjoy music, food, games and to support Project Literacy’s family programming.

Every dollar raised until September 30th, 2023 will be matched with 75¢ by the Canadian government.
Thank you for your incredible support!
