Our Founding Gift
HILL for Literacy was founded in 2001 with a generous grant from the Hanson family (Glenn, Krista, and Dale Hanson) to help address the disparities in achievement for all readers. The goal was to significantly increase the literacy performance of children through educational outreach services to schools and school systems; teacher training and consultation; research and evaluation of measured outcomes; and development of new teacher resource materials. Glenn Hanson cited his own childhood experience as the major reason for supporting the initiative. We are particularly grateful for this founding gift which enabled us to grow as an organization and have a positive impact in many schools.
