Give the gift of literacy today & for the future.
With over 180 volunteer tutors, 1,405 students, and 100+ classes at 12 locations, Lincoln Literacy has continued to strengthen our community by teaching English Language and a variety of literacy skills to others for 50 years. Support of any amount will make a lasting difference today and every day by giving the gift of literacy.
Our services change lives and give people the freedom to thrive in our community. We help our newest neighbors communicate in English and provide in-demand preparation for careers in healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, and education. We meet people where they are to register and assess students and also ask about their dreams. We even provide childcare and transportation so our students can attend classes.

In-kind donations include gifting goods, services or time — instead of money. Tangible goods may include things like equipment such as laptops or tablets, books, and/or writing supplies. Goods may also be intangible, such as advertising and professional services. Goods may be gently used or new.
