Founded In 2006, twenty-three charter donors contributed to what is now known as LLF of Michigan, believing their support would encourage others to do the same, and it has!
Please add your donation to support literacy development by completing the Donor Form. You may contribute as an individual, an organization, business or foundation. We will acknowledge you in the LLF of Michigan Annual Report unless you wish to remain anonymous. A reminder, your contribution is tax-deductible!
