A $100,000 grant has been awarded to Spread the Word Nevada, a children's literacy nonprofit, the largest ever in its 10-year history.
The $100,000 grant was provided by Windsong Trust, a charitable trust based in Los Angeles, California.
This grant coincides with Spread the Word Nevada's 10-year anniversary. During its decade-long effort, Spread the Word Nevada has provided literacy programs to more than 187,000 low-income children and their families within the Clark County School District and Las Vegas Valley.
The Windsong Trust was established by an American businessman, the late philanthropist Martin Crowley, to support the education of children under the age of 18.
