Your Support Matters

A child who struggles to read, become an adult that struggles. Students in every corner of the United States are struggling to read at grade appropriate levels – and those who are economically disadvantaged suffer the most, as 85% or more of students in poorer districts tend to fall into the “literacy gap.”​ Your donation will help us provide intensive, one-on-one reading intervention for a student. Our holistic, multi-sensory approach is proven to achieve grade level improvement in literacy proficiency in an average of six weeks. Join us in our mission to change the lives of thousands of students by providing the gift of literacy.

Our Mission: Beyond Basics is a student and family-centered, literacy-focused 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We use proven methods to provide holistic multi-sensory literacy programming to unlock the power of reading. Beyond Basics collaborates with principals and schools to bring students literacy in underperforming K-12 schools.
