Our annual Week of Giving is a weeklong celebration of our Literacy Works community. Throughout the week, we offer opportunities to learn more about our programming and impact, support our mission, and join us for our signature event, A Book That Changed My Life. We will highlight volunteers and organizations making a difference, as well as the work of our Community Literacy and Clear Language Lab programs.

We invite you to follow along through email and our social media as we tell the story of our vision that one day, literacy will be recognized as a basic human right, supporting people along their journey to read, write, and interpret the world.

Below are some of the key events and topics you can look forward to learning about during the week. Be sure to join us!


  • Hear from our Inspiration Award honoree, a tutor and learner pair who have benefited from our Community Literacy program and are working together at one our member organizations.

  • Check out the recipient of our Clear Language Lab's Community Leader Award, which highlights an organization with a strong commitment to systemic change and communication equity.


  • Learn about how to get involved with Literacy Works and connect with a neighbor in your community as a volunteer tutor.


  • Get inspired during A Book That Changed My Life, our signature storytelling event!

Help us reach our goal so our members and clients can reach theirs.
