Ways to Support Literacy Partners in 2019

Mark your calendars! #GivingTuesday is on November 27. Join the global giving movement and partner with Literacy Partners to share the gift of reading with New York families.

RSVP today to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of New York families.

Here’s how you can get involved on Giving Tuesday and this holiday season:

  1. Give the gift of reading to a family in need – no contribution is too small (or too big!) – visit our donate page or mail your gift to our office.
  2. Provide year-round support by making your gift a monthly recurring donation – offer reliable support to keep our classes free for our students, minimize administrative costs and ensure your commitment to our families never falters.
  3. Know someone who adores reading, but has every book? Make a gift in their honor to Literacy Partners this holiday season. They will receive a holiday card and welcome package from us to notify them of your generosity!
  4. See if your company matches charitable donations – many do! Just ask your HR office for details and your gift will double (or in some cases triple!).
  5. If you shop on Amazon, do so via Amazon Smile and Amazon will donate a percentage of the price of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice! (smile.amazon.com -> choose Literacy Partners)
  6. Make a gift of stock by donating appreciated securities! Please contact Emily at development@literacypartners.org for details.
  7. Get involved! Follow @Literacy Partners on Facebook and @LitPartners on Twitter and Instagram and help by sharing our content. Also, sign up for our email list so you can be sure not to miss a thing. Visit literacypartners.org to get started.
  8. Volunteer to tutor or lead conversation groups – fill out an application on our website.

Together we are changing the lives and futures of low-income and immigrant families across New York City and beyond through literacy education. Thank you!
