Donate to The Literacy Center

Why donate to The Literacy Center?

The Literacy Center is one of the highest literacy performers in the state of Pennsylvania (see Our Accomplishments).  With our team of experienced staff, faculty, and volunteers, along with our drive to find and utilize quality, cost-effective tools and materials for our students to use, The Literacy Center offers top-notch education to struggling adults throughout the Lehigh Valley – all for free.

However, because of our funding, we can only provide this quality of education to a limited number of students throughout the Lehigh Valley. As non-English speaking adults continue to emigrate to the Lehigh Valley to find better opportunities for themselves and their families, and as the number of adults without a high school diploma continue to rise, the number of struggling adults in this area is increasing at an alarming rate.

In order for us to better serve this growing number of adults, we must rely on donations and sponsorships from individuals like you who care deeply about adult education and the growth and development of the Lehigh Valley. Your donations truly make a difference in helping us maintain a high quality of education for our students. In addition, because we are a top literacy performer, you can be confident in the knowledge that our programs and services can and do improve the lives of our students and their families.
