Matching Grant

Literacy for a Lifetime is a 50% matching grant program. We can match a grant or donation you have received through businesses, foundations, or individuals. We can also work with you to find funding sources.

For example for a $1000 grant, your organization will receive $1500 worth of books! The minimum grant amount is $250.
