Each year, Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California provides brand new books and motivational reading events to tens of thousands of underserved children in Greater Los Angeles and Orange County. For many of these children, the books we provide are the first books they have ever owned. This simple gift of a personal library undoubtedly expands their love of learning and is proven to increase their opportunities for success in school and beyond.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, RIFSoCal relies on the generosity of our community members to provide our vital services -- with your support, we can continue to inspire an entire generation of children and change the trajectory of their lives!




Every $10 we receive enables one underserved child in Southern California to participate in a year of RIFSoCal programming – including motivational reading events and the selection of three brand-new books of choice to own and bring home.


With your support we can change the lives of thousands of kids in our community!
