GivingTuesday national results are in.

Out of 689 “small” nonprofits competing for GivingTuesday donations through Razoo, Anne Arundel Literacy Council came in #4 nationallywith $13,859 raised to support our students and tutors. You are absolutely the best supporters in the nation!

Why this makes such a difference

Thanks to you, 223 low-income county adults received free and individualized reading, writing, math, and English instruction in 2017. Additionally, AACLC’s tutor team of 9 volunteers working at Ordnance Rd. Correctional Center and Jennifer Rd. Detention Center are impacting countless additional lives. Your caring, kindness, and generosity made this happen!

Upcoming tutor training

Please share our upcoming tutor training dates with friends, colleagues, and family (CLICK HERE for more info – dates are Feb. 24 and Mar. 3, 2018). Training sessions fill rapidly, so encourage those interested in becoming a volunteer literacy or math tutor to register early to ensure a seat. Details are shared in the article below.

Warmest regards,
