Sponsor the 2020 Leaders in Literacy Digital Campaign
"I understand things more when I read and when people talk to me. How I speak has changed, too. Before, I could think of the words and ideas I wanted to say, but I wasn't sure how to pronounce them. Now I can say them.”
-- Paula, Adult Literacy Student
For the last 12 years, the Durham Literacy Center has held our annual Leaders in Literacy breakfast each spring. This breakfast is a chance for our community to come together, to share our students’ stories of perseverance and triumph in the face of great adversity, and to recognize the volunteers and local leaders who have made our work possible.
This year, however, this event cannot go on as planned due to restrictions put in place to protect us all from the COVID-19 Coronavirus. Instead, we will move the event online, hosting a webinar on the importance of adult literacy to fight poverty and empower members of our community. Alongside the webinar, we will be running a crowdfunding campaign to support our work. This campaign will include contact with existing constituents and community members via direct mail, email, social media, and the DLC’s website.
You can get involved by becoming a sponsor of this year’s Leaders in Literacy Digital Campaign. With your support, the Durham Literacy’s staff and volunteers help over 750 students per year gain the skills and credentials that they need to succeed in our rapidly changing world. We sincerely hope you will choose to support this campaign and become a Leader in Literacy. Together, we can build a stronger and more vibrant Durham for all.
Thank you in advance for supporting the Durham Literacy Center. Together, we can help open doors and build a stronger, more vibrant Durham for all!
