Clemson Men’s Basketball is partnering with Champions for Literacy to host a Fight for Literacy Game (presented by International Paper) to benefit the United Way of Pickens County by providing critical literacy resources.

Together, these Champions for Literacy are making sure every child is resourced and inspired to become a strong reader. Reading on grade level by the end of 3rd grade is a powerful and proven indicator that children will graduate high school and be college or career-ready. Join us by becoming a Champion for Literacy and donating to the cause!


100% of donations will stay local with United Way of Pickens County, Camp iRock to provide summer reading intervention for struggling Pickens County students in K4-3rd grade through Camp iRock.

The partnership with Champions for Literacy has dramatically increased our ability to provide high-quality reading instruction to struggling young readers in our community. Because of Champions for Literacy, these young students have a chance to nip their reading deficiencies in the bud and become strong readers before the crucial 3rd grade. We are so grateful for Champions for Literacy and the many supporters who gave through the Fight for Literacy challenge. Thank you!
