Education Action Fund 

Some of Jonathan’s friends and readers contribute, when they can, to the small foundation he created many years ago. The foundation gives emergency assistance to impoverished families whom Jonathan has known—and whose stories he has told in several of his books—to help them during times of crisis when they’re ill or may be facing dangers of eviction from their homes. With cold weather approaching, some of the families we’ve supported will be in need of extra funds to get through the winter and take care of their children. Even very small donations will be gratefully received.


The Education Action Fund is a nonprofit 501(c)3 charitable foundation, registered with the I.R.S. and the Office of the Attorney General of Massachusetts.
