Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy

The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy mission is to establish literacy as a value in every family in the nation, by helping them understand; the home is the child's first school; the parent, the child's first teacher; and reading is the child's first subject. In supporting the development of family literacy programs where parents and children learn and read together, the Foundation works to break the intergenerational cycle of illiteracy.

Since Barbara Bush launched her Foundation in 1989, it has awarded over $16 million to 472 family literacy programs in 47 different states and Washington, DC.
