GIVE the Rent for Literacy DuPage
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.
MOVING DAY IS MARCH 31
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!).
