The Case For Support

Invest in the Future

Education is the foundation for success. Not everyone had the opportunity to get a basic education. The Literacy Council is a place where people can get a second chance at an education.

Did you know…

Individuals participating in an Adult Basic Education:

  • Show a dramatic increase in income over time, especially those participating in 100 learning hours or more.
  • Are more likely to obtain a high school equivalency credential.
  • Are more likely to pursue secondary education and receive credits than nonparticipants.
  • Are more likely to develop improved literacy proficiency.

DONATE INVEST in your community

Supporting adult literacy and basic education in your community is a sound investment. Adult education programs have a measurable 450% return. This comes in the form of increased tax revenue and reduced reliance on social services. Educated citizens work, pay taxes and give back to their communities.

I’d like to donate to help The Literacy Council
