Literacy is so much more than learning to read and write.

Without literacy, it’s almost impossible to succeed in school, support your family and contribute fully to your community.

That's why we're here: to help kids learn their ABCs and adults – U.S. born citizens, immigrants and refugees – learn English, earn their GED and develop technology and job skills. We also help 450 organizations across Minnesota improve their programming, train thousands of volunteers annually, and advocate to protect literacy programs and the people who are a part of them.

Literacy Minnesota is recognized as a local and national leader and a driving force behind the latest developments in literacy learning. Our strong roots in the state of Minnesota bolster our broader leadership.

Watch the two-minute video above for more on what literacy represents, and to see just a few of the people your support helps us reach!


This Give to the Max Day, in addition to your support of Literacy Minnesota, we invite you to consider donating to nonprofit causes close to your heart led by individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC). A recent study found disparities in funding between Black-led and white-led nonprofit organizations, with Black-led organizations receiving less funding than their white-led counterparts. You can find a list by visiting and selecting “BIPOC Led” from the filters.
