Get Reading Oklahoma is a project of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation and its Literacy Is For Everyone (LIFE) Initiative.
The Oklahoma City Community Foundation is celebrating 40 years of helping donors help the community. Founded in 1969, we are a nonprofit public charity that works with individuals, families and organizations to create charitable endowments that benefit the community now and in the future. We utilize unrestricted gifts to start and support initiatives such as LIFE through which we are seeking to give all adults the chance to read, speak and learn English and basic skills at a level that allows them to be economically independent.
