More Info

My name is Craig Evanson, President/CEO of Chippewa Valley Gives Back, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Chippewa Falls, WI. We, at Chippewa Gives Back, are interested in starting a Child Literacy Initiative within our nonprofit organization to raise funds to provide the opportunity for kids within a 100-mile radius of our headquarters to get in on the $1 book club but would like to upgrade to the $2 book a month program.

We understand that more than 60% of low-income families in the United States have no children's books in their home and we would like to help bring that number down.

With our initiative in 2019, we hope to help approximately 11,200 children within the 100-mile radius at approximately 110 school districts in Wisconsin.

Our goal for 2019 is to raise $200,000 to cover the books for 8 months of the 2019-2020 academic school year to approx. 11,200 kids in 110 school districts here in Wisconsin. That would be approx. $179, 504 for the books and an additional $20,000 for marketing our initiative.
