Fast Forward to Literacy


The Fast Forward to Literacy mission is to create home libraries for economically disadvantaged children in the Denver area, promote parental involvement and family reading activities, and to prepare younger siblings for successful school entry.

of our program!
Each year, FFtL creates ten-book "starter libraries," purchasing books at cost and gifting the book sets to partner elementary schools.

Target Schools (to date): Pioneer (present), Swansea, Columbine, Barrett

FFtL is now entering its seventh year as a 501(c)3 organization. This project is a unique and worthy investment of money and time, and offers the rare opportunity to provide life-changing experiences for an entire Denver community. Please help us provide the pleasures and benefits of book ownership for children who might not otherwise have the opportunity.
