A Year of Community and Collaboration
Dear Friends & Partners,
Thanks to your support and encouragement, The Molina Foundation this past year made great progress in our mission to help children and families.
Together with our distribution partners and with the support of our generous donors, The Molina Foundation responded to the health crisis and education gap caused by the COVID-19 pandemic by suspending any costs associated with receiving a book grant, distributing personal protective equipment to qualified organizations serving children and families, and promoting health and safety measures such as wearing masks in public.
Through our flagship Book Buddies program, we gave more than $18 million in new pleasure-reading story books, magazines, activity books, and educational materials to children and families to support a culture of reading and health at home.
