As a donor, you know that every dollar you give to support Success for All will have a positive impact on children’s lives. The evidence is clear – in schools working with Success for All a child born into poverty can  read and achieve at high levels, and can be prepared for college and a wide range of 21st Century careers.

From our beginning, 30 years ago, SFA has been determined to make a real difference in children’s lives – one that can be measured. That is why we have developed the most researched and proven literacy and mathematics programs in America.

Since our launch, more than 30 independent studies have shown that our approach works – most recently in an impact audit conducted by ImpactMatters, founded by Yale economist Dean Karlan.

Dr. Karlan’s audit concludes that “SFAF delivered its program at a high level of quality to around 1,000 schools and 500,000 children last year that increase literacy as much as one grade equivalent, and reaches additional children at an approximate marginal cost of $119.”

Every dollar makes a difference. You decide whether to provide direct support to students in schools, to support the development of resources for the use of the whole network of Success for All schools, or to support our efforts to research and share programs proven to work.
