Back in 1998, Duncan McDougall had an idea for an organization that would make literacy more equitable for underserved children across Vermont and New Hampshire. That idea became the Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF), and like many successful companies, it was first headquartered in its founder’s garage.
Twenty-four years later, CLiF’s impact has grown tremendously, but one thing hasn’t changed: we still operate out of Duncan’s garage. However, the time has come for CLiF’s next chapter. This week, Duncan spoke to VTDigger about plans for CLiF’s new headquarters, and what they mean for the organization.
