Language is Power

Your gift helps give families the power to read together, parents the power to help children with their homework, and employees the power to excel. That’s a pretty powerful return on your investment.

The Price of Literacy

It costs $1,200 for us to educate one learner over the course of one year. If you can commit to that annual giving level, we’ll invite you to enjoy the special perks of our Book Club.

Of course, we appreciate any amount you can give—every little bit makes a difference! Make your tax-deductible gift today:

  • Online through our secure server
  • Via check made payable to the Literacy Center of West Michigan and mailed to:
    Literacy Center of West Michigan
    1120 Monroe Avenue NW, Suite 240
    Grand Rapids, MI 49503
  • Over the phone at (616) 459-5151

Leave a Legacy

Estate gifts can leave a lasting legacy for the Literacy Center of West Michigan. Consider including the Literacy Center in your will or estate plans. Contact us to learn more about our Legacy for Literacy.
