Since it’s official launch in 1995 Alan Duff Charitable Foundation has distributed 13 million books to over 700 primary schools and early childhood centres. Each year around 100,000 kiwi kids benefit.

The Lion Foundation has supported Duffy Books for over a decade. In that time over $500,000 has been granted, including $50,000 in 2020 to help them achieve their vision of inspiring a love of books in children so they become adults with a love of reading.

“We humbly thank the team at The Lion Foundation for investing in this year’s 90,000 plus Duffy kids across 507 primary schools nationwide.” – Linda Vagana, General Manager
