Recreational Reading Mini-Grant

Please be advised the Riordan Foundation has decided to discontinue the Recreational Reading Mini-Grant program. 


History: As our longest running program, the Recreational Reading Mini-Grant (RRMG) provided books to deserving classrooms from 1993-2018. With the help of our bookselling partners, Barnes & Noble, Perma-Bound, and First Book, eligible PreK-5 teachers created a wish list of titles up to $1,000 for their classroom libraries. These books had to be available for students to take home and share with their families, often benefiting younger siblings who also had limited access to reading material. Many classrooms benefited from the books, and we hope the program lives on in memory.
