2019 Book Grants


Today, we're proud to announce our 2019 Book Grants. For the fifth year, Reach has chosen to give 2,500 books to schools and organizations across our city. Our teens write the books, and we want to make sure they get into the hands of young readers across the city.


This year, this process was led by our new Young Professionals Council. They reviewed at rated applications. We had requests for over 5,000 books. We were able to select 28 organizations to receive the 2,500 books we'll be giving away. We're thrilled to announce our 2019 grant winners!
