Sponsor Spotlight: The Stocker Foundation

Festival Staff / October 23, 2018

Tucson Festival of Books would not be possible without the support of our amazing sponsors! This week's Sponsor Spotlight is on The Stocker Foundation.The Stocker Foundation has been a sponsor of the festival since the beginning. In addition to lending lots of volunteers, the foundation also sponsors the festival's Free Book Tent! This gracious donation is enjoyed by children from all over Tucson, and has turned into one of the festival's most frequently visited tents! Here's what the Stocker Foundation had to say: “The Stocker Foundation is a proud 11-year sponsor of The Tucson Festival of Books because we want to increase children’s access to books, encourage children to read outside of classrooms, as well as develop a lifelong love of reading. Through The Stocker Foundation’s literacy-focused grantmaking, we know reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of our very complex and changing world. Through daily reading, children develop language and listening skills that will help them to be successful wherever they go in their educational careers and beyond.”
