Support young readers!

Did you know that children who are not reading at grade level by the end of third grade are less likely to graduate from high school? Reading skills lay a solid foundation for future success!

Make a difference in the life of a child. Spark a love for reading through your contribution on! Or, if you prefer, we gladly accept checks in the mail!

Double your gift by qualifying for a matching grant!

East Side Learning Center is privileged to have a $20,000 challenge grant from The Katherine B. Andersen Fund of The Saint Paul Foundation for donations given in calendar year 2014. If you are a new donor, or if it has been more than a year since your last donation, your contribution can be fully matched! If you are one of our steadfast donors who give each year, the amount of any increase in your gift this year can be matched!

We can only fulfill our mission of "unlocking each child's potential through the foundation of reading" with support from many caring individuals and organizations.

Thank you for your support!
