Friends of Literacy relies on financial support from our community. By donating at the Empowerment or Transformation level, you make an ongoing commitment to improving adult and family literacy in East Tennessee.
Empowerment: Your recurring donation of $100 per month empowers an Adult Reading or ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) student by supporting the student and his/her volunteer instructor. Friends of Literacy spends $1,200 per year to train, equip, and support each student/volunteer pair.
Transformation: Your recurring donation of $250 per month transforms the lives of children in our community by funding a Family Literacy workshop at a local elementary school or supporting the equivalent number of families participating in our online Family Literacy Program. The cost for each workshop, including books for families to start a home library, is $3,000 (based on 40 families).
Every gift helps improve adult and family literacy in our community!
