Please give the Gift of Literacy
Please give the gift of literacy on #GivingTuesday and contribute to our Holiday Fundraising campaign that launches on November 29th, in alignment with Giving Tuesday, and extends until December 31st.
Your #GivingTuesday donations will help us create more opportunities for learners to learn, connect, and express themselves, including the following in-person programs:
In 2023, we plan to offer learners internet subsidies to offset the effects of inflation, and healthy food boxes to those experiencing financial insecurity. Your contributions make a big impact on our small charitable organization.
Ways to donate:
1. Make a secure online donation on CanadaHelps.org or our GivingTuesday page
2. Mail a cheque or money order to: Parkdale Project Read, 180 Sudbury St, Unit C7, Toronto, Ontario M6J 0A8
3. United Way Donor’s Choice: Ask your workplace to make PPR the recipient of your one-time or monthly donation to a registered charitable organization.
Please make your donation before December 31st to receive a 2022 tax receipt. We provide tax receipts for donations of $20.00 or more.
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of adult literacy learners!
