Every gift helps transform a life.
While 67% of our financial support comes from public and private grants, we also depend on tax-deductible gifts from caring individuals. In fiscal year 2008/2009, individuals contributed over $30,000 in cash to support our programs.
Please contact our Development Director to discuss your gift and request a Personal Gift and Pledge Form. If you prefer, you can make your donation securely online through our Facebook account. Simply click on the Donate Online button at the bottom of this page.
The Leader’s Circle
We especially want to recognize those dedicated donors who make significant, long term commitments to us.
Learning to read and speak English is hard work and takes time. Many of our students stay with us for several years – sometimes as many as six years. Your pledge can ensure a student’s long term journey to literacy by supporting the Literacy Council’s annual operating costs.
Become a member of The Leader’s Circle by pledging a minimum of $675 per year for three years. Each spring you will enjoy a special gathering of the Leader’s Circle members. Please become a member today!
The Walter and Nancy McConnell Scholarship Fund
Help a student or tutor by supporting the Walter and Nancy McConnell Scholarship Fund. This fund covers the cost of training materials – $20 for a student’s workbook and $25 for a tutor’s instructional materials – if a Literacy Council student or volunteer cannot make this contribution.
Memorial and Honorary Gifts
The Literacy Council encourages you to consider making a gift to memorialize a loved one or to honor someone’s life and achievements. Your donation in the name of a relative, friend, or co-worker may be the perfect gift to celebrate a birthday, holiday, anniversary, or special event of those who are blessed with abundance.
We will send a letter of appreciation to the honored individual or family of the deceased and describe how this special gift will be used by the Literacy Council.
Please direct all inquiries and gifts to:
Ashley Vandewart Lasher, Executive Director
Thank you, donors…
…whether your gift is as individual, corporate partner, or grant, you help transform hundreds of lives every year.
