At Scholastic, we tap into our core strengths of publishing and distribution to improve the lives of underserved children through literacy partnerships, innovative outreach programs, and strategic in-kind giving. We address the reality that many children do not grow up in literacy-rich environments or have access to quality books, and that families need information, resources and assistance as they encourage and support their children’s development as strong readers.
Partnering with communities helps bring books and reading to all children. Programs such One for Books in which Scholastic matches the spare change donated by participants of Book Fairs and then uses those proceeds to purchase and then donate books to national non-profits, and ClassroomsCare, which empowers students to learn about reading and giving through Scholastic Book Clubs and ultimately help donate 1 million books - placing books directly into the hands of kids who need them.
Throughout Scholastic corporate headquarters in New York’s SoHo, employees are surrounded by Scholastic’s mission and credo—literally. The words are printed on the heavily trafficked staircase in the heart of the building. It’s a powerful statement for those who visit the office: that Scholastic is a global business and corporate citizen that is committed to the company mission.
