Vision & Mission
Our Vision…100% Literacy in America
First Lady Barbara Bush established the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy with
one primary goal: Eliminate the intergenerational cycle of illiteracy in America.
For 24 years, the Foundation has funded the start-up or expansion of over 1,200 family
literacy programs, investing $50 million in communities across the United States.
Today, Jeb Bush and Doro Bush Koch serve as Co-Chairs, while Barbara Bush serves as
Honorary Chair and remains actively engaged in our work.
Our Mission…to advocate for and establish literacy as a value in every home
Our Challenge
33 million American adults cannot read. Even worse, America is losing
its place as a world leader in education. According to Harvard University economists,
throughout American history almost every generation has had substantially more education
than that of its parents. Unfortunately that is no longer true, and the economic
ramifications are crippling.

tremendous need for literacy programs across the nation. There are many ways you can
make a lasting impact on multiple generations of Americans. Even the smallest donation
can make a huge difference in the lives of children and families.
Here are some examples that illustrate the power of your contribution:

H.E.A.T. Success Story
Mildred Peeks
“I never used to think about how contributions to programs like H.E.A.T.
help so many people,” she says. “But when I became disabled, I
understood more than ever the importance of putting myself in other
people’s shoes. You have to give help when you can, and you have to ask
for help when you need it.”
