The Get Georgia Reading Campaign is a growing collaboration of more than 100 private and public partners rallying people, organizations, and communities to ensure all children in Georgia achieve reading proficiency by the end of third grade, preparing them for continued success in school and the workforce.

Our comprehensive approach necessitates the engagement of a broad and diverse network of entities. The Campaign actively encourages a wide range of organizations working at the state or local level to join in this effort by finding new ways of collaborating across Georgia, across sectors, across agencies and organizations, and across the early years and early grades, using data to inform decisions. The Campaign is always interested in engaging partners who want to use the four-pillar framework to strengthen and enhance their existing programs and work collaboratively.

Scores of organizations, ranging from the Georgia PTA to the Georgia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, have joined our Campaign as partners committing to leveraging their organization’s reach and influence to spread the message about the Campaign’s four-pillar framework and investing in strategies that fulfill their mission. Others connect in their home communities providing books, volunteering in schools, and becoming involved with local efforts.

Who Else is Involved?

The Campaign is a platform for collaboration. It reflects the shared commitment of partners from across Georgia who have raised their hands to find new ways of working to ensure all children achieve the critical milestone of third-grade reading proficiency. We are also connected to a national Campaign for Grade-Level Reading linking hundreds of communities across the nation committed to removing barriers, expanding opportunities, and assisting parents in fulfilling their roles and responsibilities to serve as full partners in the success of their children.

Cabinet: The Campaign operates under the auspices and guiding vision of this group of statewide public and private organization leaders. Cabinet members leverage their statewide reach and positions of leadership to promote the application of the four pillars at the systems level and act as ambassadors inside their sectors and network, sharing information about the Campaign and promoting the framework for action. The Cabinet has applied this framework by implementing strategies within their own organizations and across agency lines.  

Partners: Many organizations have joined this Campaign as partners committed to leveraging their organization’s reach and influence to spread the message about the Campaign’s four-pillar framework and investing in strategies that fulfill our mission. Contact us to find out how your organization can join the effort.

Investors: The Campaign has received generous support from a number of national- and Georgia-focused foundations and corporations. Their investments have made possible the operation of the Campaign itself and a number of innovative strategies around the state. Contact us if you would like to learn more about how your organization can invest in this work.  

Host Organization: The Campaign’s host organization is Georgia Family Connection Partnership (GaFCP). As a member of the Cabinet, GaFCP has connected its statewide network of Collaboratives and technical assistance team to support the Campaign’s mission. The collective efforts of these leaders and the hundreds of other partner organizations are supported by a small staff based at GaFCP.
