Read Fort Worth is one of three finalist organizations in the running for a $100,000 donation from Reliant Gives, a charitable-giving program from Reliant Energy.
Reliant Gives will help support initiatives that promote children’s literacy in Fort Worth ISD, such as reading volunteers and the Library Classroom campaign. The shared mission of Read Fort Worth and Fort Worth ISD is to align partners, strategies and resources to significantly improve early childhood literacy so that 100 percent of Fort Worth third-graders are reading on grade level by 2025.
From Oct. 15-21, the public can vote online. The nonprofit with the most votes receives $100,000. The other two nonprofits receive $20,000 and $10,000, respectively, based on the number of votes received.
Reliant employees nominated a wide selection of Texas nonprofits, which are narrowed to three finalists for each round. Winners will be announced Oct. 23.
