Sponsor the 2022 Leaders in Literacy Luncheon!
"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 past 15 years, the Durham Literacy Center has come together each spring for our annual Leaders in Literacy celebration. This year, we’re very much looking forward to bringing together our supporters and community for an outdoor, lunchtime event to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and to look forward at the future of adult literacy in Durham.
After two years of virtual events, we’re so excited to be with our supporters in person on May 12th at Durham Central Park! We’ll share inspiring stories of student success, how our organization has adapted to meet the changing needs of our community and recognize our 2022 Leaders in Literacy Awards recipient.
We hope you’ll get involved in this exciting event by becoming a sponsor. Our 2022 Leaders in Literacy Awards Luncheon is expected to draw over 200 attendees. With more than 650 local households receiving direct mail communications, 3000+ people receiving email communications, and 3000+ reached via social media, your business’s commitment to adult literacy in Durham will be highlighted across multiple channels and platforms. Additional details about sponsorship levels and benefits are enclosed.
We sincerely hope you will choose to support this campaign and become a Leader in Literacy. With the support of community members like you, the Durham Literacy’s staff and volunteers have continued to provide instruction remotely throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. DLC programs help adults in Durham gain the skills and credentials that they need to obtain living wage employment, understand vital health literacy information, access supportive services, and achieve their professional and personal goals. Together, we can ensure that our community has an equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, with equal access to opportunity for all.
