Read To Succeed of Murfreesboro was awarded a $2500 grant by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization dedicated to enriching the quality of life in the 40 Middle Tennessee counties it serves.  Grants for $1.24 million to 255 nonprofit organizations were given as part of the Foundation’s annual discretionary grant making process.

Read To Succeed is the Rutherford County literacy collaborative nonprofit that promotes reading, with an emphasis on family literacy.  The grant will be used to expand the program to new schools in order to serve approximately 1,000 more disadvantaged parents and children as part of their family literacy program.

“The work of the nonprofit partners has never been more important as we watch needs emerge and evolve in this community,” said Ellen Lehman, president of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.  “The Community Foundation is honored to connect generosity with need through these annual grants and other avenues throughout the year, but we couldn't have an impact without the array of quality nonprofits offering solutions to our community’s needs and vital services to our neighbors.”
