CFP stampWashingtonian Assistant Editor Mary Yarrison’s article, “How to Choose the Right Charity to Get Your Donation,” provides a two-page guide to help make sure you’re donating to the worthiest causes this year – and the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia is mentioned as one of the five most highly regarded Washington-focused nonprofits! Click here to read the full article.

Each year LCNV changes the lives of over 1,500 adults and their families, leveraging the help of 700 volunteers. This allows 90 percent of LCNV’s operating costs to go directly toward our programs. Your donation helps to provide quality education for adults in need, giving them the tools and skills they need to succeed and the hope of a better life.

Right now is the best time to give to LCNV because your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $25,000! This is LCNV’s biggest challenge to date – can you help us meet it by making a donation now at All new and increased gifts to LCNV will be matched. If you give a gift of $25, it will be matched with another $25 and become $50 – enough to provide a scholarship to an LCNV learner! A gift of $50 will double in value to $100. And if you can possibly share $100, it will become $200. No matter the size of your gift this year, you’ll be making TWICE the difference in the lives of our students!

In addition your donation to LCNV may earn you tax credits if you live in Virginia! Gifts from individuals totaling $500 or more, or gifts from corporations of $615.39 or more, made from July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2013, may be eligible to receive tax credits in Virginia equal to 65% of the donation.
