Imagine if you could not read a teacher’s note about your child’s school performance. Picture yourself trying to decipher medicine labels. Envision maneuvering a place as large as Northern Virginia without knowing how to read a bus schedule or Metro map. These simple tasks are immense challenges for someone who is illiterate. Literacy is a survival skill. By empowering individuals with the gift of literacy, LCNV opens pathways that enable them to become more independent, confident, and active in their communities.

Support the Literacy Council on Give to the Max Day this November 9, 2011.

Give to the Max Day is a one-day fundraising event that unites local Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC communities to support nonprofits serving the area. LCNV, alongside hundreds of nonprofits, will compete for cash awards and matching grants offered throughout the day. Every donation you make gives the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia a chance to win even more funding.

Please visit, and consider making a contribution to the LCNV Scholarship and Advancement Fund. Your generous contribution of $50 will directly support an adult learner for a full semester. By donating $150, you will enable a student to attend a full year of classes. A $500 donation will enable a mother and her two children to participate in a 12-week family learning class. Consider donating to the Fund, and support an adult who has come forward to learn.
