Liz Smith was our patron saint – her unwavering commitment and support of adult literacy helped over 27,000 students learn to read in the 40 years she advocated for Literacy Partners. Liz also established the Liz Smith Fund at Literacy Partners to encourage others to join her in giving the gift of reading to their fellow New Yorkers. Help her vision live on – a gift in her honor will be used to carry her legacy forward by continuing to give low-income and immigrant families access to the basic literacy education they need to succeed in today’s world.
“And I thought, holy cow – we could teach this guy to read.” – Liz Smith
