Ohio State Men's Basketball is partnering with Champions for Literacy to host a Fight for Literacy Game (presented by International Paper) to benefit 2nd & 7 Foundation 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 the 2nd & 7 Foundation, to provide their Tackling Illiteracy program to hundreds of 2nd graders in the Columbus area.

Expand opportunities by making your donation today.

*ALL DONATIONS MATCHED! International Paper has pledged to match every gift, up to a total of $5,000!


Coaching for Literacy has been a key partner of 2nd & 7 in the Columbus market to tackle illiteracy. Over the years, their contribution has helped serve thousands of students in our reading program. We wouldn't be able to continue without the support of CFL!
