Universal education must be relevant to the true needs of a community and contribute to the unification of mankind. It must enable people both to move in the direction of their own choosing and help them appreciate those universal qualities that distinguish the entire human race. A well-educated community member is a determined yet humble participant, who helps overcome conflict and division thereby contributing to a spirit of unity and collaboration. Education is the common thread throughout the majority of all Binda grants.

2016-2017 Education Grants
SLD Read: After 10 years of impacting children's lives and their reading proficiency through one-to-one tutoring, the Binda Dyslexia Center has dissolved as a nonprofit. We are excited to announce that this help for struggling readers in the Battle Creek area will now be offered by another well-respected regional provider of one-to-one tutoring services - SLD Read.

On July 1, 2017, SLD Read, a Michigan nonprofit corporation formed in 1974, with offices in Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, will begin to offer one-to-one tutoring services to all former students of the Binda Dyslexia Center who desire to continue, as well as future students in the Battle Creek area.

For additional information or to access services, you may contact SLD Read at 269-345-2661 or visit

Community Unlimited/ECC: The essential component of this continuing year round program is the trained, competent Family Coach, who provides Welcome Baby Basket visits, enrollment in Imagination Library, family coaching support to at-risk families of infants and children birth to five years old utilizing Parents as Teachers curriculum, and toddler play groups in the Union City, Burlington, Tekonsha and Athens communities.
