What does it mean for a nonprofit to be CRA aligned?
Each nonprofit on Community Qualifier has been reviewed by findCRA utilizing a dual evaluation process. Nonprofits are first evaluated by our proprietary algorithm, CRANIA, and then further validated by our CRA experts. When nonprofit passes both parts of this review, we create a nonprofit profile for them on Community Qualifier. From there, a nonprofit can claim their profile and add additional information including their programs & services, counties served, targeted clients and income groups and more.

Kids to Kids
Kids to Kids is the flagship program of Spread the Word Nevada. It allows us to put books into the hands of at-risk children so they may build home libraries. Book ownership is a critical factor in every child’s intellectual development. Far too often, the books provided through the Kids to Kids pro­gram are the first books these children have ever owned. During the initial distribution at an adopted school, all pre-kindergarten through 5th grade students receive a drawstring backpack that serves as a “safe-keeping” place for storing their book collection. Five new and gently used books are selected at this kick-off celebration, and then, once a month, one additional book is selected to add to their libraries.

Breakfast with Books
The goal of Breakfast with Books and Snack Time with Books is to increase the awareness and importance of reading as a family activity. Each program consists of a light snack, story time, raffle, and most importantly the opportunity for both children and parents to select a new book. Basic reading strategies are reinforced throughout each story, and families are given an activity to take home to “extend” the story. This is an opportunity to encourage further discussion and enable each family to share and foster a love of reading in the home.

Books & Buddies
Books & Buddies is a Multi-Generational Reading Program developed to improve the literacy skills of children by partnering them with volunteer mentors acting as reading companions. Working together, the volunteer and student focus on improving the child’s reading proficiency, comprehension, and oral reading skills. Books & Buddies mentors provide the much-needed individualized attention that is not readily available within the classroom and, unfortunately, often absent from the child’s home environment.
