Help Fund Student Scholarships to Improve Literacy

Prior to the pandemic, more than 60 percent of K-6 students in the Santa Barbara area read below grade level. Literacy experts and school leaders are expecting greater decline due to consequences of the pandemic. The vast majority of youth in our community will need literacy support. The McEnroe Reading & Language Arts Clinic is a state-of-the-art research and teaching institute housed within the Gevirtz School of Education at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Students receiving support from the Clinic are showing unrivaled measurable growth in literacy. The research-based programming at the clinic has been recognized as a model and a resource for improving literacy instruction at the state and national levels. To continue and expand our services, we look to our community and philanthropic supporters to fund student scholarships. If you can donate at any level, please contact Tina McEnroe at (805) 350-2588 or
