The Katie Titus Early Literacy Fund, established in 2019 in loving memory of Katie Titus, supports projects, programs, and organizations in the Broome County New York community that provide early literacy services to families and children.
Katie Titus was a week from her 17th birthday when she died as a result of an automobile accident. A junior at Binghamton High School, Katie was an active member of Students Against Destructive Decisions, Binghamton Athletes Care, girls varsity swim, and a “Teens in the Tier” reporter for the Binghamton Press and Sun-Bulletin. Katie was a beautiful young lady with a wonderful insight into life and people. She possessed a strong sense of justice and held a strong desire to help others. Along with these qualities, Katie was notable for a ready laugh and a quick wit.
Katie’s first love was reading and writing. Her hope was to attend college and major in communication. This fund is established in her memory so that young children have the opportunity to learn and grow through a love of reading.
