The Literacy Alliance is a nonprofit organization that relies on the financial support of individuals, foundations, organizations, and corporations. Our donors help us continue our work of empowering adult students to reach their educational goals. There are so many ways to give: through financial gifts; donations of supplies, books, or classroom space; or by becoming a tutor or volunteer.
Make a monetary gift to support the immediate needs of our students. Your entire donation will go directly to our programming and be able to help immediately. It costs approximately $600 per year per student to operate our programs.
