What We Do

Promising Pages is a nonprofit organization that inspires underserved children to achieve their dreams by instilling a love of reading. Fueled by studies showing that children who can’t read proficiently by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school, Promising Pages provides innovative classroom programs and more than 100,000 free books annually, making us Charlotte’s largest and most efficient distributor of upcycled books aimed at addressing this critical – and solvable – community need.

Interesting Info

More than 500,000 donated books have cycled though our Operations Center since January 2012.
Promising Pages was the Leadership Charlotte 2016 Legacy Award Winner.
Each summer we host a power-house high school and college internship program called "Team Read". Our 20+ interns host more than 100 literacy events each summer.
