give the gift of literacy

Endowment Fund 

The Kalamazoo Literacy Council has established an endowment at the Kalamazoo Community Foundation to ensure adult literacy services will be well-supported long into the future. 

Planned Giving

The KLC welcomes charitable gifts from forward-looking donors. Planned giving involves providing a future gift through your financial or estate plans. Often, a planned (deferred) gift can be more substantial than what you might be able to donate as an outright gift.

By including us in your long-term giving, you will become part of a legacy society whose generosity enhances healthcare for people in our community today, tomorrow and forever. There are many options for planned giving. Planning your donation takes careful consideration. When you begin planning, you should consult an attorney, certified public accountant or other tax professional. If you have included KLC in your will or would like more information about how to do so, please contact us.
