April 18, 2018

The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy mourns the passing and celebrates the legacy of its founder. Barbara Pierce Bush-a beloved first lady, proud mother of six children, accomplished author and passionate champion for family literacy-passed away on April 17, 2018. Mrs. Bush believed that every man, woman and child should have the opportunity to secure a better life through literacy. In 1989, this belief inspired her to establish the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, which has provided educational opportunities for Americans of all ages, in all 50 states, over the past 29 years.
