MissionMade is a Minnesota non-profit whose mission is to help other non-profit and charity partners increase their revenue and the capacity to tell their story in a new way to existing donors and new customers.
MissionMade does this by creating, purchasing/managing inventory, and fulfilling orders through the e-commerce stores we host on behalf of the non-profits we represent.
MissionMade manages each non-profit’s customized store and donates 20% of all revenue from their store back to that non-profit partner and their mission (the national average is 3%).
If you would like to know more about MissionMade, have a non-profit you think we should work with, have a product we should consider selling, or if you want to make a donation to our cause, you can visit us at MissionMade.org
Reading partners harnesses the power of community volunteers to make a meaningful and measurable difference in reading proficiency. Our one-on-one tutoring model is backed by evidence-based research proven to raise the reading proficiency of students who are at least six months below grade level in reading.
Our volunteer reading partners empower students to succeed in reading and in life by providing individualized, personal attention to each student in our program.
According to 2014 statistics from the MN Department of Education, fewer than four in 10 St. Paul and Minneapolis third-graders are meeting key benchmarks for success in reading and reading comprehension. Reading Partners is partnering with the Mpls/St. Paul school districts, as well as other local organizations to help ensure more students are obtaining grade-level reading skills.
An independent randomized control trial, considered the gold standard of research, found the Reading Partners program to have statistically significant impacts on student reading proficiency, including reading fluency, comprehension and sight-word reading. It also found the program to be effective for a wide variety of students from different grades and baseline reading achievement levels, for male and female students, non-native English speakers and students of different ethnicities. It also found the Reading Partners program to be implemented with fidelity and more affordable for schools to implement than other typical reading intervention.
