As a non-profit organization, Literacy DuPage runs entirely on donations from groups and individuals.
Since our move in March (just down the hall, but to a larger space with a dedicated training room!), we have been busy filling our office with the necessary materials to host orientations and training seminars for new volunteer tutors.
Eventually, our office set-up will end, and we’ll feel fully settled in this space.
But some things never end. Rent, for example! It’s one of those expenses that continually occupies a big space in our budget. And we could use your help to cover the cost.
Through this GoFundMe campaign, we aim to cover an entire year's rent ($24,000). As your donations ease the burden of this essential but relentless expense, we’ll keep working to fill our new office with necessities—tables, chairs, computers, whiteboard, materials—to train the big-hearted tutors who will change lives by teaching adults to understand, speak, read, and write English.
