Literacy Partners is taking part in the Newman’s Own Holiday Challenge, a fundraising campaign sponsored by the Newman’s Own Foundation in partnership with CrowdRise. Nonprofits are joined in a friendly competition with each other to raise the most money from November 21 through January 3rd. Whichever organization raises the most money wins an additional grand prize of $150,000, and Literacy Partners needs your help!

Join Our Team

We’re asking our supporters to set up a CrowdRise page as a member of Team Literacy Partners. It takes just a few minutes. Then, all you need to do is share it with your network – email, social media, word of mouth – whatever works for you!

Each donation, no matter the size, puts Team Literacy Partners closer in the running for the grand prize, weekly challenge prizes, and special prizes on Giving Tuesday (November 28).

Our development team will be here to support you throughout the campaign to make your effort a success and ensure you meet your goals. Hear from our team captain, board member Courtney Corleto, on why she’s joining the Newman’s challenge and what literacy means to her.

If you’re interested in participating, please sign up here. Once you do, we will reach out with further instructions and our outreach toolkit (photos, social media copy, and other collateral) to make your personal campaign as seamless as possible! If you have any additional questions, contact Emily at

You can also sign up directly on our campaign page, and see the current members of Team Literacy Partners!
