The Davis Foundation recognizes that it cannot accomplish the goal of reading proficiency for Springfield’s children alone. While the Foundation's Reading Success by 4th Grade campaign has established the importance of this academic milestone and continues to make progress towards this ambitious goal, there is much more work to be done. The leadership and accountability for this work cannot sit solely at the Foundation. The community as a whole must embrace and own this goal and commit to holding all of us accountable for its success. To this end, a Leadership Advisory Committee was created in 2014.
The Leadership Advisory Committee has engaged a diverse group of leaders in the community who work with the Davis Foundation to increase the number and strength of powerful voices for children in Springfield.
