    On February 7, 2011, the San Francisco Youth Commission passed a resolution commending the invaluable work of the Children’s Book Project in increasing literacy and creative language arts enjoyment among San Francisco’s most vulnerable young people and for our exemplary work in developing the intellect and social and emotional intelligence of San Francisco’s youth.

    The Children’s Book Project was awarded the 2007 National Philanthropy Day Vineyards Award by the Association of Fundraising Professions and Northern California Grantmakers. Each year, National Philanthropy Day honors organizations and individuals who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, generosity and commitment towards advancing philanthropy. The Vineyards Award is presented to a local nonprofit organization that “toils in the vineyards of philanthropy,” serving the underprivileged community with the combined resources of many volunteers and staff.
