Like most nonprofits, Craven Literacy Council relies on a mix of private gifts and corporate and foundation grants. These grants vary in size, but all are vital to us achieving our mission of helping adults learn to read, write, compute and use technology effectively in their every day lives.
This year CLC received 2 new grants. The Christ Episcopal Church Women gave a $500 grant for the purchase of a laminator and binding machine. We will use this equipment to develop more professional and easy to use instructional materials.
Our other new grant is from Bank of America in the amount of $2,500.
We will use this money to purchase software and additional laptops for our students’ use. We are thrilled that Bank of America is funding CLC’s efforts in our community and look forward to collaborating with Bank of America on Financial Literacy classes for our students.
As another grant season comes to a close, our Executive Director here at Craven Literacy Council can give a big sigh of relief. The time she spent at her computer this spring writing grants to the wonderful companies who support adult literacy in the US has been rewarded.
Thank you to all our supporters!
