Reading for Life 2020 Virtual Fundraising Event


We had been hard at work planning our 10th Anniversary Ready for Life Fundraising Breakfast, and while we could no longer host the in-person event this spring as planned, we  found a new COVID-19 friendly way to support full-day Kindergarten programs in Edmonton.   

Over 2,000 community members joined us on Friday, May 1, 2020 for the virtual Reading for Life fundraising event presented by Christenson Communities.

Instead of getting dressed up and joining other community-minded leaders at our annual fundraising breakfast, participants stayed home and spent some time reading, while also making a meaningful difference in the lives of children. 

Participants were invited to consider making a gift to support full-day Kindergarten programs in Edmonton Public Schools.  Gifts today will help ensure every child may succeed in learning and in life.

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in and supported Reading for Life on May 1, 2020!


Anytime on Friday, May 1, 2020


It's simple: stay home, read anything you want, and reflect on the impact reading and learning have made in your life. 

We also invite those who are in a position to do so, to consider supporting full-day Kindergarten programs by contributing what you might have donated at our annual breakfast event.  

DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT: Our friends from EPCOR will be matching donations to the Foundation during Reading for Life!


Everyone is welcome to participate.  Find out who attended here.


It's up to you! Party PJs, loungewear, or something fabulous that makes you feel extra-special!
