Help us share the joy of reading—become a Page Turner

Sometimes, ONE TO ONE students say three simple words that are bound to make any tutor smile: “Reading is awesome.”

There are few things more gratifying than a ONE TO ONE student telling you that reading, something once so challenging for them, is now fun—awesome, even! So many lessons, adventures and opportunities await these struggling readers between and beyond book covers. They just need some help getting there.

Reading still fills hundreds of elementary school students across British Columbia with anxiety and frustration—and we know we can help. Today, we’re calling on you to help us bring the joy of reading to even more students across the province.

We’re pleased to introduce ONE TO ONE’s new monthly donor program: Page Turners!  For as a little as $10 per month, joining Page Turners will help keep our impactful program free for schools and families and expand it to reach children who need it.

Here’s how your monthly donation will add up for ONE TO ONE:

  • $10/month covers the cost of one student to participate in ONE TO ONE
  • $25/month provides ongoing training and support to a volunteer tutor
  • $50/month keeps a participating school in our program
  • $75/month provides start-up resources to a new participating school
  • $100/month recruits and trains volunteers for one school year

Becoming a Page Turner is easy and Earth-friendly. You’ll also receive special updates on how your gift is keeping our students’ pages turning throughout the year!

Plus, the impact of your gift will be doubled. The Francis Family Foundation has generously offered to match every gift made between now and December 31, 2017 up to $15,000. Thanks to the Francis Family Foundation, your gift of $25/month for one year, for example, will result in an investment of $50/month. Making a one-time gift of $250 will result in ONE TO ONE receiving $500.
