Because our services are free for our adult learners, the Literacy Council relies heavily on financial contributions to achieve its mission. Your donation will help Frederick County residents gain the reading and English language skills they need to find jobs or to better their employment status, assist with their children’s education, get a driver’s license, obtain citizenship, read prescription labels, improve consumer skills and health outcomes, and generally become more confident, involved members of our community.

The Literacy Council of Frederick County appreciates any donation level. You may wish to:
- Make a donation in a special person’s name.
