Your Help is Needed Urgently!
“Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach him to fish, feed him for life.” Unknown
We would like you to help us help 1,000 Bay Area Adults stand on their own two feet…for the rest of their lives by bringing them the Power of Literacy.
Why does a lack of adult literacy matter to you? No matter what cause is near and dear to your heart or which ‘societal drain’ has you most concerned, literacy is almost always at the core of the solution. This includes issues as varied as: unemployment, poverty, homelessness, health, incarceration rates, women’s issues, child welfare and more.
On top of all that there is the good karma, the tax-deduction and with a significant enough donation (see the list on the right) the ability to join us at an exclusive VIP event where you can test drive the hottest car on the market today:
Tesla Showroom in Santana Row
December 4th from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Vision Literacy has spent decades using the best practices and technologies to refine the task of bringing literacy skills to adults. Over the years we have used a variety of methods to impart literacy skills, but most importantly we have used data to hone the methods that work and jettison the ones that do not.
We are proud to say that for every 70 hours of instruction we provide we increase reading levels on average by two grade levels and have seen increases as much as seven grade level in just a few months.
Government funding has all but evaporated for adult literacy leaving Vision Literacy unable to reverse the societal ills caused by low literacy – so we need your help.
Please consider a donation to this worthy cause. You can do so knowing that every hour of service your donation helps us provide to an individual they must invest as well. The adults that receive our service must work right alongside us to receive the gift you are giving.
We would also be honored and grateful if you were to share this cause with your social networks. Just use the share icons in the top right of this page.

What is Literacy?
Definitions of literacy are always changing -- 50 years ago it was enough to sign your name; today one needs to use a computer for routine tasks. We define literacy as having the language, numeracy, and technology skills necessary to be self sufficient and participate fully in society.
Through our key partnerships with donors, volunteers, and organizations, Vision Literacy helps individuals reach these goals.
