Donate and Help Adult Students Reach Their Goals

Your Generosity Makes A Difference

Whether you donate online or send a check, your gift to the Delaware County Literacy Council (DCLC) helps local adults to gain the skills they need to get a job, keep a job, become citizens, read to their children, and take charge of their lives. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.


The Literacy Council’s services are free to eligible adults. Through your generosity, we are able to purchase books for our new adult readers, purchase much-needed classroom technology, and undertake building and classroom improvements.
