Funder Collaborative for Reading Success

The Funder Collaborative for Reading Success (FCRS) was initiated in 2011 by the SIS Fund of the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts with leadership from The Irene E. & George A. Davis Foundation. This coalition of funders along with a group of leading Springfield grantmakers was established to support the work of the Read! Reading Success by 4th Grade initiative. The Funder Collaborative has raised over $2 million, and grants from the initiative have benefitted numerous early literacy programs and the children and families they serve.

The goal of the Funder Collaborative for Reading Success is to strengthen early literacy by providing resources to organizations or programs that are in alignment with the RS4G initiative.
