"Connecting our Members with the Right Grantmakers since 1999."
The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation is dedicated to putting books in the hands of Canadian children.
The Foundation's Literacy Fund grant program promotes and supports literacy initiatives at Canadian high-needs elementary schools by funding the purchase of books and educational resources. Grant recipients receive 90% of the grant as a corporate account to purchase new books at Indigo Books & Music Inc. (at a 30% discount), and 10% in cash to fund special literacy events or initiatives to stir the imagination of the students in a way that will help inspire a love of reading.
Publicly-funded elementary schools serving students in Junior Kindergarten through grade eight are eligible to apply.
Application guidelines are available on the Foundation's website. Applications must be submitted online.
