The Literacy Council is in its third decade of service to Central Alabama because of the energy and commitment of friends like you. When you give the gift of reading, you open up a world of new possibilities and fundamentally change an individual’s life. The ability to read is a gift that lasts forever: it cannot be lost, cannot be stolen, cannot be taken away. A gift for literacy is an investment in your community because better readers make better workers, better parents, better citizens.

Donations to the Literacy Council of Central Alabama are tax-deductible and all gifts are acknowledged with a heartfelt thank-you and a receipt for your tax purposes.

There are two ways you can support literacy – by making a monetary gift or participating in one of our special events.
