RIF was recognized as the Most Trusted Brand and Brand of the Year in the Youth Non-Profit category in the 2018 Harris Poll EquiTrend Study
It makes our hearts warm to remember Jake’s firm belief in Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California’s mission to promote literacy and motivate children to read. As a long time Board member and Book Warehouse volunteer, he just wanted to help provide brand new books for as many children as possible. Jake, who passed away in October of 2018, had arranged for his estate to donate over $13,000 to ensure our work continues. The RIFSoCal Board, staff and the children we serve pay tribute to Jake’s vision of literacy for every child.
It is with bittersweet feelings that we say so long for now to Suzi Coscarelli on her retirement from Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California.
Suzi has been a driving force of our nonprofit since 2004. As Community Relations Manager, she helped increase our volunteer base and programming. Her smile, her amazing personality, and her love and devotion to the children and our schools has been remarkable. As the hostess, who welcomed all to our annual RIFSoCal Orientations, she made everyone feel right at home.
Suzi leaves an indelible imprint on our RIFSoCal family.
The RIFSoCal Board of Directors and staff wish Suzi the best of luck in the next new and exciting chapter in her life.
