The Love of Reading Grant will make such an unbelievable difference in the lives of our students. We are so excited to see where this takes them.

A one per cent increase in literacy adds $18.4 billion to the Canadian economy1.

A donation to the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation is one of the soundest investments you will ever make.

More importantly, your donation goes directly towards transforming our neediest schools and reaching our most vulnerable children. You will be helping to put a book into a child’s hands and create a culture of literacy that supports a lifelong love of reading and ongoing self-esteem and success.

We offer 3 different opportunities to donate*:

  • General Donation. Make a general donation to the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation.
  • Tribute - In Honour. Celebrate that special someone with a donation made in their name. Birthdays, graduations, weddings, and other occasions are a wonderful time to give a special and meaningful gift.
  • Tribute - In Memory. Honour a loved one by commemorating their life with a lasting tribute.

Donate now online or make a cash donation at any Indigo, Chapters or Coles store.

*We are happy to provide a tax receipt for donations made online.
