Literacy Matters

Help Us to Invest in a Better, Brighter Future Today!

The Literacy Council of Grand Island relies on charitable contributions from our individual donors and corporate partners alongside grants to support the costs of our learner-centered programs. 

Since 1981, your support has allowed us to expand the number of students served, tutors trained, and staff necessary to transform lives every year.

The Literacy Council is a 501(c)(3) organization so your gifts will be tax deductible.
