GIVE the Rent for Literacy DuPage

$2,755 of $24,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 2 months

As a non-profit organization, Literacy DuPage runs entirely on donations from groups and individuals.

As you know, rent is one of those expenses that never ends. And right now, due to the terms of our lease, we're preparing to move our office. Same building, same floor, but with a dedicated training room where our learners and tutors can meet, and the same supportive landlord who has agreed to hold our rent steady for the next year.

Through this GoFundMe campaign, we aim to cover an entire year's rent ($24,000), while we focus our efforts on filling the new space with necessities: tables, chairs, computers, whiteboard, and materials to train 100 big-hearted tutors who will change lives by teaching adults to understand, speak, read, and write English.

We'd love to have your donation before we unlock the door to our new space. But we'll keep this link open long after the move (like we said: rent never ends!).

After you contribute, spread the word!
> Take a photo (maybe a selfie of you reading your favorite book, or you and your friends raising a glass to Literacy DuPage).
> If you're on Facebook, add this custom photo overlay to your profile picture .
> Share your image on social media, and encourage others to support Literacy DuPage along with you.

To show your support, tag @LiteracyDuPage in your post and/or use our hashtags:

When we see your post, you'll be entered in a drawing for a $50 gift card to Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville or a wine tasting for six at Lynfred Winery in Roselle. We'll select the winners in May, during the ribbon-cutting ceremony for our new office.

Thank you so much for supporting Literacy DuPage.
By contributing, you're doing much more than paying our rent.

Together, we are changing lives!
