Thank you to the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo
and The John R. Oishei Foundation!

Read to Succeed Buffalo is grateful to the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo and the John R. Oishei Foundation for their continued support of our efforts to improve the lives of children by giving them a strong start in Kindergarten.    

The Community Foundation has recently awarded us a grant in the amount of $75,000 for 2011 to offset the organization's operating costs. The Oishei Foundation contributed $119,000 to Read to Succeed for this year, also for operating expenses.  

Both foundations have provided funding for Read to Succeed since our inception and we are grateful for their on-going support and their strong commitment to improving literacy and student achievement in our community.  

Read to Succeed Buffalo Honored to Receive fiserv. Donation

Read to Succeed Buffalo was honored recently as  the recipient of a $3,500 donation from fiserv., a leading global provider of information management and electronic commerce solutions for the financial services industry. 

Employees at the local office of the Brookfield, Wisconsin-based company raised the money during their annual holiday auction and through "casual day" donations throughout the year. 

Donald Edman, Vice President of Operations, presented the donation to Read to Succeed, as well as to Summit Educational Resources and Wings Flights of Hope, at a ceremony at fitserv. offices. We are grateful for the generosity of the firm and of their employees for their donation and for their committment to improving literacy!
