Business Donations

We are grateful for the support of our business sponsors.

We are focusing our efforts on providing funds in support of the Tempe Public Library Children’s Library which currently serves almost 40,000 children per year. The children’s library is the largest in the country in square footage. If you haven’t visited, we encourage you to do so and see the amazing work the librarians are doing for our Tempe children and families.

Our intention is to raise funds in support of children’s literacy. The specific projects for which we hope to provide funding are:

  1. The creation of a “Family Corner” which is a “nook” consisting of literacy based games and materials with which children from infants to age 5 and their parents can engage together in activities to promote literacy. The main focus is on the “Every Child Ready To Read Program” which trains parents to assist their children to become strong readers.
  2. A Literacy Center: The focus is on preparing children between 5 and 8 years old to transition from learning to read to reading to learn.
  3. “Computer Lab On Wheels” which will consist of 20 laptop computers that will be mobile and allow computer education to be brought to specific locations both within the library as well as to elementary schools in Tempe.
