Why Donate?

Do you remember learning to read? More than likely, you don't. Can you imagine someone going through life not being able to read and not being able to help his or her child learn to read? To date, nearly 120,000 people in Franklin County have low literacy levels (American Community Development Survey, 2006-2008). 

Columbus Literacy Council strives to improve the lives of these individuals by teaching literacy skills; however, ninety-five percent of our students are at or below the poverty level and are not able to pay for services. The Council is recognized in Central Ohio as the provider for those individuals and families that have no financial resources to purchase literacy skills.

We need your help to continue offering our life-changing services that give our students an opportunity to learn the skills they need to reach their potential and become self-sufficient. If you support our mission, please consider sending us a check (Attn: Joy Reyes) or sending a monetary donation over the internet on our Donate Now page.
