Be a RIF Fundraiser

Thank you for your interest in supporting children’s literacy. We are thrilled you want to work with Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) to ensure that all children have the opportunity to own books, learn to read, and thrive
 
There are multiple ways you can volunteer your time. One critical area is by helping RIF raise money to get more books into the hands of children everywhere. Our work is made possible through the generous support of donors. Every donation helps RIF deliver on our mission and you can be a fundraiser for RIF and look to your friends, families and colleagues to join in.
 
Below please find some suggested opportunities to join us as a volunteer RIF Fundraiser:

Create a personal fundraising event on your Facebook page

If you have a special occasion coming up (or perhaps you want to leverage a literacy occasion like National Reading Month in March), set up a Facebook donation opportunity to reach out to your network to maximize your collective impact for RIF. Below are steps to walk you through the process to set this up on your Facebook page.
 

Book Club Fundraising

Who better than book lovers to help support RIF’s mission to ensure every child has a book to own. If you are part of a book club and/or know of others in your community, ask each book club member to donate to RIF in the name of the book club. The RIF team can even set up a custom donation page to support your fundraising efforts. Also, we would be happy to send a few treats to your book clubbers to say thank you.
 

Host a book drive and raise money for RIF

Take a look at our ideas for hosting a book drive and then take it one step further to leverage as an event to raise money for RIF. Ask your friends, family members, colleagues and anyone else to donate gently used books to a book drive you host and promote. While hosting your book drive, ask everyone who drops off books to also consider contributing to RIF to ensure children everywhere can receive books to take home and own.
