Donor Recognition Wall

Craven Literacy Council is grateful for the businesses and individuals who generously contribute every year to provide sustainable funding to support functional adult literacy. These folks are truly "Literacy Leaders" in our community.


Why Literacy?

Because, in the words of ProLiteracy, when individuals the world over learn how to read, write, do basic math, and use computers, they are more likely to lift themselves out of poverty, contribute to improved health care costs, and find and keep sustainable employment.



CLC Literacy Leaders

Donors who give $1,000 and above during one program year (July-June) are valued members of the CLC "Circle of Friends". We honor these generous donors in our annual report and at our special events, and reward them with complimentary tickets to events. Other tiers of annual giving are honored as Literacy Leaders.

With your gift as a Literacy Leader, you provide the much needed funding to train volunteer tutors, buy materials, purchase computers and provide individual tutoring space. You are directly helping low-literate adults get to the literacy levels that will allow them to take advantage of better-paying jobs and/or post-secondary education.

On behalf of our staff, volunteers amd students, Craven Literacy Council extends heartfelt thanks and deepest gratitude to our 2016-2017 Literacy Leaders.
