Promising Pages

Promising Pages is a nonprofit organization that inspires underserved children to achieve their dreams by becoming bookworms.

Our Partnership with Promising Pages

Our mission is to provide ownership of books to underserved children and cultivate a lifelong love of reading through innovative literacy programs and partnerships. Fueled by studies showing that children who can’t read proficiently by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school, Promising Pages provides innovative classroom programs and more than 100,000 free books annually, making us Charlotte’s largest and most efficient distributor of upcycled books aimed at addressing this critical – and solvable – community need.

We make it easy and affordable for schools and community partners to get books at the lowest cost or for free. These books are distributed via a variety of touch points, including the YMCA of Greater Charlotte's YReaders Program.
