As a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, Macomb Literacy Partners relies on grants and charitable donations for the majority of its funding. If you would like to contribute to MLP, please read the varying types of ways you can help.
Project 300 members are donors who pledge to give $300 or more yearly to sustain MLP. Project 300 support is important because MLP relies heavily on donations to carry out day-to-day operations. Donations pay for educational materials for students and tutors, support tutor trainers, and finance staffing expenses. Since MLP counts on community support, we appreciate the pledge that Project 300 members make: to support literacy with a consistent, yearly donation.
Donations are acknowledged on our website. Additionally, Project 300 donors receive a certificate acknowledging each year’s donation. Many of our donors like to display their certificates in their places of business as a sign to the community that they support MLP.
If you are interested in becoming a Project 300 donor, or would like to share information with a friend or colleague, please contact us.
LEGACY FOR LITERACY
Legacy for Literacy is MLP’s planned giving program. We have been told that individuals often want to give donations to MLP, but aren’t sure that they can afford it while they are living. So, some people choose to leave a gift for MLP when they pass on. To date, the Legacy for Literacy program has accumulated over one-hundred thousand dollars for MLP. These gifts have helped sustain our programs and services through difficult economic times.
One of the greatest gifts our donors can leave is the gift of long-term sustainability. Planned gifts help ensure that MLP can continue to deliver important services to our community. The Legacy for Literacy program enables individuals to plan for charitable giving to an organization they trust.
If you are interested in the Legacy for Literacy, MLP has a knowledgeable resource person that would be happy to help. Please contact our office at (586) 286-2750 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
