Life. Liberty. Literacy.
The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy is the nation’s leading advocate for family literacy. Founded by former First Lady Barbara Bush, we believe that family literacy is key to solving today’s most critical challenges: social and economic mobility, quality of life, and global competitiveness. Research shows that reading proficiently by third grade is directly linked to successes later in life, yet millions of America’s children are struggling to read today. Thanks to the generous support of individuals, corporations and foundations, the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy provides educational opportunities for young children and their parents, helping them achieve the literacy skills they need to pursue a brighter future.
