By 2020, a dozen states or more will increase by at least 100 percent the number of children from low-income families reading proficiently at the end of third grade.
The Campaign is building a network of national and local civic leaders, policymakers, advocates, community organizations, and everyday people to assure:
A seamless, outcomes-accountable system of care, services, and family supports for children, from birth through third grade.
The Campaign is supported by a broad range of public, private, and nonprofit sector organizations, including the National Civic League, the National League of Cities, Generations United, United Way Worldwide, Target, City Year, the Corporation for National and Community Service, the U.S. Department of Education, and America’s Promise Alliance. At the state and local levels, the Campaign works with governors, mayors, school boards, superintendents, teachers, chambers of commerce, and many others.

Across the nation, funders and nonprofits have helped us build a “big tent.”
More than 80% of low-income children are not reading proficiently at the end of third grade.
We focus on community solutions, quality teaching, and strong systems of early education.
