Wisconsin Reading Coalition is a clearinghouse for reliable information about reading and a networking vehicle for individuals and organizations that bring scientifically-based reading services to Wisconsin students. The content on this website does not necessarily represent the views of any particular organization. 

Although Wisconsin Reading Coalition does not accept donations, many of the following organizations will gratefully accept your tax-deductible donations to further the work of the coalition and their individual missions. New listings will continue to be added; please contact us if you are interested. All reading services must be scientific research-based.
