Building Philanthropy for a Better Florida

The Patterson Foundation's Funding for Campaign for Grade-Level Reading Surpasses $1 Million

August 03, 2017

In addition to providing strategy and capacity-building support, The Patterson Foundation has also helped the GLR Campaign’s communities stay connected to each other through a digital platform known as The Huddle, which enables more than 1,500 community leaders to learn from one another and share promising practices.

Beyond support for the national Campaign, The Patterson Foundation is engaged in ongoing GLR Campaign efforts in its home state of Florida — including work with the Florida Grade-Level Reading Campaign, which guides the work of 16 communities statewide committed to the GLR Campaign’s goals. It is also a lead funder of the Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, which encompasses Manatee and Sarasota counties. The Suncoast Campaign has earned a variety of accolades for its work to help children achieve grade-level reading proficiency, including a Pacesetter Honor, one of the highest awards presented by the GLR Campaign, and the prestigious All-America City Award.
