Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Educational Services

Mission: We seek to provide to early childhood educational programs free or very low cost Tools of Learning, including phonetic, musical and mathematical instruments that allow even the most vulnerable children to get started on success.

Results: Our impact has been impressive. Many children and families have found themselves to be so much more advanced than other children that schools don't know what to do with them! Which is a great incentive for more people to be involved. Ask us at ToolsofLearning@gmail.com for more info. All programs serving vulnerable children can qualify for FREE or low-cost supplies and materials (in accordancw with our annual fundraising successes).

Target demographics: We make available reading, math and learning support to children and families ages 3 to 5 as they geat ready for a lifetime of learning in schools of all types.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 2000+

Geographic areas served: Home area: Solano County, Northern Bay Area, but we serve programs without charge across the country.

Programs: We make Frontline Phonics and (soon) innovative early math learning tools that reward young people and their families through preschools, childcare settings, Head Start programs, etc.

I have been watching Tools of Learning For Children for some many years now . . . and have come to the conclusion that it is one of THE most valuable and effective operations I know of in the field of producing needed literacy in our society . . . and of course achieving that requires we begin with our children as soon as they are ready. Murray Bass and his team are exemplars of success in this.
I recently had the pleasure of hosting him in New York while he met Brenda Moore the founder of K.E.E.P. in Liberia. The occasion was for Murray and Brenda to meet and plan logistics for Tools of Learning for Children to assist KEEP in achieving his goals on a more world wide basis.
Tools of Learning for Children is one charity that truly delivers on the promise of its stated purpose. Its founder, Murray Bass, is an exemplar of doing the right thing.

I came to know of this organization when I was introduced to them as an important organization to interview on my radio show: The Learning Curve Radio Show with Roger & Virginia.
Tools for Learning for Children turned out to be such an important and valuable performer in its field, we interviewed the founder, Murray Bass, four time to get the important message across. Here are the interview links: http://thelearningcurveradioshow.com/?s=murray+bass&submit=Search

Literacy for our children and our society is a passion of mine and my partner, having published our research findings in the book: How to Learn–How to Teach: Overcoming the Seven Barriers to Comprehension

Murray Bass and his organization deliver on their promise wonderfully and I am an avid supporter of what they are doing.

Murray Bass's organization is dedicated to helping put educational tools into the hands of students and teachers in the most need. His desire to make education more accessible to all children is the basis for the work they do.
Not only does Tools support education here in the United States but they are also helping to bring much needed educational supplies to children around the world.
They are very prompt at responding to emails.

As CEO of Master Educator Tutoring Service and Xchange, and Host of The Happy Classes TV Professor on The Ubiquitous Learning Channel www.bearsandLord.net, I find that Murray Bass's Tools of Learning for children, is the shining light in a very dark Education world. Any parent,school or church that uses this program, can't help,but see success,especially when you see this program light up the eyes of the Children while they experience the academic success of what is happening . I love what Murray Bass, Founder and Creator of this effective program is lifting up children across racial,cultural,and economic levels. This program has to be the top rated reading program in the country for young ages and adults who need basic reading skills. Murray is an excellent news columnist,compassionate knowledgeable,faithful citizen, who helping thousands of other people,not just children reach their full potential.

Tools of Learning for children has been a positive tool I have used in my classroom for Kindergarten readiness for the past 10 years. I found that children adapted well to the program with little effort. I would like to thank Murray Bass for his continued support in furthering early education for our children in our community.

Tools for learning has been a very big part of our curriculum in our program for children 3-5 years old, for the past ten years. We have seen all the children leave with tools from the frontline phonics to start their life long reading experience. Murray Bass has given his heart and soul to give us the opportunity to teach the benefits from the program.
It truly is a wonderful curriculum.

I initially became acquainted with Tools of Learning for Children in early 2000. I work for a large technology company that is very focused and involved in contributing to the development of our future workforce. Learning to read, write, compute and speak well are fundamental skills that all of our kids need to develop at the earliest stage in life - years 0 to 5. Tools of Learning for Children has an exceptional program that focuses on the fundamentals by using tools that are effective for teaching our youth. My company has consistently supported this organization throughout the past 15+ years because of their commitment and success throughout our education community.

I am a former Board member. "Tools" as we affectionately call it, continues to work tirelessly to promote literacy in our young children to help them succeed in like. Most recently we expanded our scope to assist children from Liberia who have little to no access to educational materials due to the prolonged civil war there. We partnered with business to provide the most remote areas with basic learning tools and continue to build on this effort. At home we are committed to assisting pre schools by supplying a reading dynamics curriculum at a nominal cost. This is all accomplished by a small, all volunteer Group made up of teachers, business people and other professionals who give tirelessly because of their passion for children and their success in school.

Tools of Learning has certainly made a big difference in our family. I gave all my grand nieces and nephews (6 in all) their learning packets when they were under two. All learned to read before they reached the age of four. And what a difference it made in their preschool and elementary school. They are all ahead of the other children in their classes. This added to their self confidence in school and made them better learners. Can't thank this program enough.

Tools of Learning For Children is a fantastic organization that brings phonics materials into the hands of young preschool children. As a former preschool teacher- I personally used the program through Tools of Learning for Children and it's amazing! The cost is minimal- but the benefits are huge!
