Without Reading, Where Would You Be?

Your help is vital to LVA’s low-literacy solution, because we rely on charitable contributions to keep our unique, student-centered programs free of charge for low-literacy adults in metro Atlanta (Fulton, DeKalb, Cobb and Gwinnett counties).

All Donations to LVA are Tax Deductible.

We are a 501 (c) (3) organization, so your donation is tax deductible. For more than 20 years, LVA has been Atlanta’s only adult literacy organization providing one-on-one tutoring exclusively to adults who read and write at or below the fifth-grade level.

Thanks to the support of donors such as you, we’ve grown from a small volunteer group to a leader in Atlanta’s adult literacy community. By donating now, you can help LVA continue to change the lives of hundreds of the adults and families every year.

Just a Few Examples of What Your Caring Can Do

As a lean, volunteer-based organization, LVA maximizes the use of every dollar — which means we deeply appreciate gifts of any size. A contribution of:

  • $25 pays for a family literacy assessment
  • $50 pays for training one volunteer tutor
  • $75 pays for testing and supplies for one student
  • $125 pays for supplies for an entire classroom
  • $200 pays for supplies for a class off-site

You can easily and securely donate to LVA online. Or you can mail your gift to:
