About Us


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 include:

  • To support a variety of literacy initiatives
  • To collaborate with other organizations

LLF Michigan encourages philanthropic investments in temporarily restricted and/or general operating funds that support literacy-related efforts. We solicit gifts 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. We prepare an annual report noting donors and activities for the year, and distribute the report in March of the following year. The Board welcomes inquiries regarding current and future activities.  Please visit our How You Can Help page to learn more.
