Barbara Bush’s Legacy Lives On
Anyone coming of age within the last 29 years would be hard pressed to find a reading program not touched in some way by Barbara Bush’s influence. After establishing the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, Bush advocated tirelessly for literacy across the nation and internationally. Over the past 29 years, the Foundation has raised and provided more than $110 million in support to create or expand family literacy programs in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Supporting 160 programs nationwide, the foundation is now the single largest provider of literacy services to adults in the U.S. who read below a third-grade level.
