Read to Succeed

Read to Succeed Buffalo was recognized as a national Pacesetter Community in 2015.

Read to Succeed Buffalo (RTSB) was created by a long-term funding partnership with the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, The John R. Oishei Foundation and the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation that has spanned over a decade. The organization believes that with exposure to high quality, intentional instruction and literacy rich environments from birth through 3rd Grade, all children, regardless of economic or social challenges, can reach their highest potential.

In 2015, Buffalo was honored as a national Pacesetter Community by the The Annie E. Casey Foundation and The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading (CGLR) for its measurable progress in addressing some of the barriers faced by economically disadvantaged children in becoming proficient readers.

Through its programming and partnerships, Read to Succeed Buffalo works to prepare children from birth through age eight by increasing a child’s exposure to reading and learning opportunities that prepare them for academic success.
