Leadership Giving: The Literacy Trust

Each year, friends and supporters of the Literacy Council provide flexible resources that help sustain CFLC’s programs and legacy of service. Leading these vital efforts are members of the Literacy Trust, donors who commit to contributing $500, $1,000, or $2,500 annually for five consecutive years. This leadership-level giving allows our programs to reach more adults who want to improve critical literacy skills.

We appreciate the support of our current Literacy Trust members! In addition to recognition here on our site, members will be listed by giving level in the annual Cape Fear Literacy Council Honor Roll of Donors (unless anonymity is requested).

Corporate Support

Cape Fear Literacy Council’s partnerships with corporations and small businesses in the region have been a critical factor in the success of the educational opportunities we provide to adults in our programs. Partnering with the Literacy Council offers businesses the unique opportunity to connect with the community, increase brand visibility, and show support for addressing one of the most important silent crises of our age: adult low literacy.
