Indigo has a long-standing commitment in the communities where our employees and customers work and live. We are devoted to children’s literacy, and partner with high-needs schools and their communities across Canada to ensure their children have access to new and engaging books. Indigo also has programs that extend support beyond these high-needs schools. The Indigo FUNdraisers make it easy for all schools and community groups to earn funds for the programs that matter to them.
Our Special Focus: Children's Literacy
As booklovers, we at Indigo are passionate about children’s literacy. Early literacy fosters a lifelong love of reading, boosts confidence and self-esteem, and is a foundation for future academic and professional success. Learn more about what we are doing to help high-needs schools and their communities ensure that their children have access to new and engaging books.
The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation helps schools in challenged communities combat the devastating effects of provincial cutbacks and reduced budgets. Every year, Love of Reading commits $1.5 million through its Literacy Fund to transform 20 high-needs Canadian elementary schools and their students’ lives. Since 2004, it has committed $13.5 million to 150 schools and impacted the lives of 42,000 children across Canada. Learn more or apply for a Literacy Fund grant.
For three weeks every fall, Adopt a School unites Indigo employees, customers, schools and their communities in raising money to rejuvenate high-needs elementary-school libraries across Canada.
