Together we make a profound difference

Masons have always championed public education. Today, our leadership is needed more than ever.

Together, the Masons of California and Raising A Reader will bring a nationally-acclaimed literacy program to those who need it most: children in the state’s lowest-performing public elementary schools, who are at the highest risk for educational failure.

We will circulate children’s books to homes, engage families in shared reading of those books, and help thousands of children develop reading readiness skills.

Your generous contributions will support our goal to significantly improve child literacy in California, transforming the future of thousands of children, their families, and their communities.

We can address this critical area of need, and improve our state’s public education system at its most basic level - child literacy.

We will make literacy our legacy.

Engaged parents are the heart of education.

By providing deserving families statewide with the tools they need, we will inspire a new generation of California's children to read, learn, and succeed - one book at a time.
