Mission

The Literacy Legacy Fund of Michigan supports the improvement of a literate Michigan citizenry of all ages through the distribution of charitable funds to enhance literacy-related efforts.

GOALS:

  • Support literacy-related projects and activities created by LLF Michigan
  • Support other organizations and entities that promote literacy
  • Enhance Michigan educators’ professional and leadership development

LLF Michigan encourages philanthropic investments in temporarily restricted and/or general operating funds that support literacy-related efforts. We solicit contributions from individual, group and corporate donors throughout the year, and invest these funds in secure deposits for future use.  Anyone interested in promoting literacy development is encouraged to donate. Please visit our How You Can Help page to learn more.
