Friends of Literacy Partners
Our Associate Board


We invite you to join Friends of Literacy Partners, our associate board of dedicated professionals and community volunteers from publishing, finance, marketing, and consulting industries who make it their business to support NYC families, as well as the next generation of readers.

Our Mission

Friends of Literacy Partners supports Literacy Partners fundraising initiatives by helping to raise funds for Literacy Partners education programs. Members drive the vision of the associate board and collaborate with Literacy Partners staff and board members to create inspiring events that reflect and support the organization’s mission. Associate Board members attend quarterly meetings, commit to donating annually or monthly or lend advice in their area of expertise and participate in the planning and execution of a Literacy Partners special event.

Members receive:

  • Exclusive invitations to Friends of Literacy Partners networking events
  • Invitations to NYC ticketed cultural and literary events
  • Complimentary Book of the Month membership promotional code
  • Discounted or complimentary tickets to Literacy Partners Annual Gala and special events

The program doesn’t just teach reading skills. It sets parents up for success. Literacy is empowerment!” – Erika Alter, Friend of Literacy Partners

“Literacy means self-determination! My favorite moment at Literacy Partners is hearing students’ personal stories and watching their English develop in the WANY groups.” – Shannon Webb, Friend of Literacy Partners
