Give the gift of literacy today & for the future.

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 students where they are to assess and register them for classes, and also ask about their dreams.

As a donor, you are able to direct an executor or trustee to make a gift to Lincoln Literacy through a will or trust. You maintain complete control over the assets during your lifetime, and you can change your instructions for their ultimate distribution at any time.

In-kind Donations

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.
