handpaint_300x300We partner with and support organizations that share our goals of growing the love of reading in all students. From board books to chapter books, we partner with many organizations that get the books into the hands of children and help them develop a passion for reading. We work in innovative ways with partners locally and around the world to harness our collective impact in key areas, while engaging employees through volunteerism.

Coughlan Companies’ (the parent company of Capstone and Jordan Sands) partnership investments are with organizations that have the same missions: literacy, learning opportunities and sustainability. Many of our partners are located in the state of Minnesota, but we also have many partnerships with both national and internationally nonprofit organizations.
