Make Your Contribution to RIF

RIF has established the Margaret McNamara Giving Circle in honor of our founder, Margaret McNamara. Donors who make contributions of $250 or more a year become members of the giving circle.

Margaret McNamara

Margaret McNamara founded RIF after identifying a tremendous need for students in Washington, D.C., to have their own books. She had learned first-hand that many of these students had nothing to read at home but the phone book. In November 1966, Mrs. McNamara, along with a group of volunteers, launched the book distribution and reading motivation program now known as Reading Is Fundamental. To honor the legacy of Margaret McNamara, RIF worked with Margaret McNamara Pastor, daughter of Margaret McNamara and a board member of RIF, to establish this Giving Circle.
