Checking “Literacy” off a student’s wish list!
2020 Fundraising Results
Giving the Gift of “Literacy”
Every holiday season, many of us think of ways to give to the those who matter to us and those who need it most. We believe that the greatest gift is the chance to change a life. At LearningQuest, we’ve found that being able to impact someone’s life by helping them reach their literacy goals is a gift that last far beyond the holidays.
What “literacy” really means to someone
Literacy for our students means more than just reading and writing. It means that they’re able to engage in their world like they never were capable of before. You’ve helped to make these things possible:
Reading medicine labels
Helping their child with homework
Getting their drivers license
Signing up for a library card
Reading a newspaper
Earn their diploma and more!
Impacting real students

“Someone told me that if you don’t try, you will never learn. You have to try, maybe you are going to make mistakes, but you are going to learn.”
-Laura Mendoza LQ Library Tutoring Student

Message from the Director
It is so heartwarming to have you, our donors, respond so generously to provide the support we need for our literacy program and to give the gift of reading. I know many of you enjoy reading for enrichment of your mind and your soul, and you have now given that opportunity to our students. While this Covid19 world we live in tends to make us feel more alone, your generosity showed we are not. We have people like you who care deeply about this work and want others to have the educational foundation that has made your life richer. You are partners with us in the work of bringing hope through education and we value and appreciate your friendship. Thank you so much and happy new year!
– Karen Williams Executive Director LearningQuest – Stanislaus Literacy Centers
