KLRU Awarded $5000 Grant for Work in Childhood Literacy

KLRU was recently awarded a $5,000 grant from the Austin Community Foundation to underwrite the cost of educational children’s programming used in Ready to Learn, its early childhood literacy initiative. KLRU’s nationally award-winning outreach services provide life-long learning tools to fulfill the educational needs of children, teachers and parents in Central Texas. In particular, Ready to Learn provides families with a variety of critical skills that promote school readiness in our region’s youngest learners. We are thrilled that the Austin Community Foundation has chosen to partner with us in providing this vital service.
