San Mateo County reading initiative
June 14, 2014, 05:00 AM

Silicon Valley Social Venture Fund (SV2), announced its selection of The Big Lift Collaborative of San Mateo County, a reading initiative, for a $120,000 grant over the next three years to build The Big Lift’s organizational capacity and scale and deepen its work.

The grant involves a strategic partnership plan, which will engage numerous SV2 Partners at all levels of The Big Lift, bringing significant professional expertise and connections to this multi-sector collaborative.

The Big Lift’s goal is to increase the percent of children reading at grade level by third-grade, from 58 percent to 80 percent by 2020.
