Veronica’s Story; Challenge Match Achieved; Upcoming Events
Veronica brought flowers to thank Alejandra and Caitlin for helping her pass her citizenship exam!
Thank you for making 2017 great for adult learners!
Veronica came into our office one chilly day last November. She was beaming and carried a large bouquet of flowers and a card in which she wrote, “Thank you so much Literacy Network for helping me and many others fulfill their dreams of becoming United States citizens!” Veronica achieved one of her biggest goals with the support of volunteers, interns, donors and staff at Literacy Network. We were so proud to be a part of her journey and to see the great successes of so many other adult learners who came to us with big dreams in 2017.
Thank you so much for being a part of making Veronica’s dream come true. We look forward to doing more great work with you in 2018!
Challenge Match: $125,000
Goal Achieved – Thank you!
The challenge of $125,000 was announced on Thursday, November 9th and by the end of the evening, $68,800 had been matched by donors.
We are happy to share that 89 donors helped us exceed our goal, raising $141,760! We are so grateful to the donors who believe in this work. Gifts to the capital campaign ensure that we can continue to increase the number of students served. They ensure that our doors remain open and welcoming to all the adults who need to improve their literacy skills.
Thank you for being part of adult literacy education. Thank you for moving us closer to the goal of raising $3 million to increase our impact. The campaign will continue in 2018 as we work to ensure that more students have access to services in Dane County.
