As a writer from Vermont Magazine once observed, CLiF does a lot with a little. We are able to accomplish so much thanks to our dedicated, creative, and energetic staff, board of directors, and board of advisors.


Duncan founded CLiF in 1998. He has given hundreds of literacy presentations to children and parents throughout New Hampshire and Vermont. His vision and leadership have helped CLiF mature into an organization that has inspired thousands of low-income, at-risk, and rural children and given millions worth of brand-new books to children and struggling communities.
