"Read Stuckton!": A Philanthropic Opportunity?

John F. Kennedy School of Government (Harvard)



Case Study Sector


With great fanfare, the city of Stuckton, a medium-sized, rust-belt city, launched a citywide effort aimed at getting all third grade children to being able to read at the third grade level. The initiative, called "Read Stuckton!" was initially supported by the editor of the city paper, The Stuckton Times, who provided initial funding, and convened a number of key individuals on a regular basis to develop the initiative. Now, with their plans still developing, and much in need of an infusion of funds, they have come to you as an individual citizen of Stuckton who has long been committed to educational objectives, with a request for assistance.
