Dear Raising A Reader Network,

Have you received an email from your RAR Portfolio Manager inviting you to complete the year-end check in? We are reaching out to all Affiliates to learn how organizations are responding to the pandemic and what 2021 might look like. This information helps us better anticipate the needs of the Affiliate network and create the tools and resources you need to be successful. We’ve been learning right alongside our Affiliates throughout the crisis and your input has been invaluable! The call should take about 30 minutes. As a token of our appreciation, you’ll receive a $100 credit towards a future purchase. Let us hear from you!

Last Friday’s Town Hall featured “spokesperson” Sammy Rabbit from the Excite Credit Union. It’s never too early to get your children and families fluent in financial literacy. With their free online tools, they are helping families address topics of spending, saving and charity. See the slides and video here.

This Friday will be our last Town Hall of the year! We’ll do a Year-in-Review with a presentation of highlights, and small group discussions on the learnings of 2020. Please join us as we wrap up a fabulous year of weekly Town Hall meetings. Register here.
