VOLUNTEERING

10 Ways To Get Involved and Make a Difference

#1

Become a Volunteer Tutor

For 90 minutes twice a week you can make a difference in a student’s life by becoming a volunteer tutor.  Tutoring is held in a public facility and free training is provided.  One does not need a teaching background or to be a full-time resident to volunteer.

#2

Make a Financial Contribution

You can make an immediate impact by donating now.  Big or small, your monetary gift means we can continue to help our students become more productive citizens because of improved literacy skills.

#3

Employer Matching Gifts

Have you made a donation to LSIRC?  Check with your employer to see if they will match your gift.

#4

In-kind Donation

We’re always in need of notebooks, folders, pens, pencils, small eraser board with erase board markers, and other tutoring and office supplies.  We gladly accept donations of supplies and office equipment. Gift cards that can be used for our tutors/students or as incentives are greatly appreciated. For our special events, we greatly appreciate silent auction gifts/raffle items.

#5

Service Donation

Do you have a special skill or talent that would benefit our students? Photography, cooking, computer skills, computer repairs, and other talents — we would love to discuss opportunities for you to make a real difference in our students’ lives.

#6

Planned Giving

Want to strengthen the financial future of Literacy Services?  If you are unable to make a significant contribution today, a charitable bequest may be the solution. It allows you to enjoy your lifestyle today while supporting Literacy Services tomorrow.

#7

Host a Fundraiser

We’re always searching for friends to host a happy hour, donate a portion of retail sales, sponsor special events such as a private golf, tennis, bridge, fishing outing, or other fun and informal fundraising activity.
