The National Book Fund makes grants for educational materials to adult
literacy and adult basic education programs to help teach adults to
Before ProLiteracy established the National Book Fund (NBF), literacy programs that couldn't afford to buy books for students and instructors simply did without them. Students shared worn-out books with other students. Instructors used cast-off books, outdated resources, and photocopies during lessons. But today, with the help of NBF, we're changing all that.
In 1995, using only donated funds, the NBF began providing local
literacy programs throughout the United States with New Readers Press
books and other educational materials.
The NBF makes grants to adult literacy and adult basic education
programs. The NBF supports the following initiatives: basic literacy,
adult education, English language instruction, GED/HSE preparation, and
family literacy. The NBF does not award grants to individuals.
