We’re focused on improving early reading!

Why does early reading matter?  It predicts a child’s success in school, the community and their career. A child’s reading proficiency by the end of third grade has a direct connection to their likelihood of graduating high school. Every high school drop-out costs our community an estimated $260,000 in support due to lost earnings, taxes and productivity. Let’s turn the page on this issue and improve our community together.


United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra is committed to leading children in our region towards success, one book at a time. Join us for Nevada’s Big Give Day—together we can put books in the hands of children across Northern Nevada. 

UWNNS, incorporated in the state of Nevada, links the community's will and resources to improve lives. Your donation to UWNNS may be tax deductible.
